doos 6 flessen.

Prachtige complexe witte blend.


Blend: Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon & Chenin Blanc

Tasting note
A bright yellow colour with a green tint suggest freshness and complexity. The nose is fragrant with citrus blossom,
passion fruit, grapefruit and hints of honey. The palate is medium bodied, fresh and clean, revealing hints of waxy
lanolin, apricot, white peach and passion fruits. The acidity is long and fresh giving a refreshing length to the wine.
This wine will continue to develop in depth and complexity with further cellaring for at least 8 years after vintage.

After arriving at the winery, fruit was chilled overnight to 10 degrees Celsius. Whole bunch pressing resulted in only
the best juice being pressed from the bunches, with light additions of sulphur on the pressed juice. The juice was
naturally settled without the use of enzymes and transferred to a selection of French oak casks the following day.
Fermentation occurs naturally and lasts for 12-24 weeks with periodic battonage. There was no use of added tartaric
acid. Due to low pH and high acid levels, there was minimal malolactic fermentation. After ferments had completed,
the barrels were topped, given a moderate addition of Sulphur and “tight bunged” ontop of the gross fermentation
lees. The individual barrels were aged separately with barrel selection and blending being done in September 2015.

This is the personal project of Carl van der Merwe, winemaker at DeMorgenzon, in partnership with the owner of DeMorgenzon.
Herbal and leafy on the nose, cassis-leaf and bud. Intense, concentrated but full of life. The oak lifts rather than suppresses the fruit. Deep, spicy and very, very long. (JH)
