Demorgenzon DMZ Garden Vineyards Rose (750ml)
At DeMorgenzon, the slopes rise up to 400 m above sea level with the ocean as a backdrop. Rather than refer to their vineyard as ‘mountain’ terrain, they prefer to be known as ‘garden vineyards’. In Spring specially chosen wild flowers flourish between the vines. They have no doubt that a bio-diverse and ecologically sensitive environment produces infinitely better grapes. To add to the beauty of the landscape, Baroque music is piped through the vineyards as it is believed that the power of music positively influences the ripening process.
A blend of 41% Syrah, 22% Grenache Noir, 18% Mourvèdre, 16% Cinsault, 3% Viognier. The grapes vineyards are grown on weathered granite soils in Stellenbosch. Trellised and bush vine vineyards are managed to ensure natural high acidity and full flavour concentration. Fruiting zones are managed to encourage sunlight exposure onto the grapes allowing grapes to be harvested earlier with a lower sugar level and good flavour development. Hand picked and fully destemmed with the juice remaining 2-3 hours in contact with skin contact before being drained, blended and fermented. This elegant style wine was partially matured in old oak barrels for a few months for added complexity and body. Aromas and flavours of cherries and strawberries, followed by crispy summer fruit salad palate. The palate is accented with delicate floral and spice nuances. Great balance and completely dry.
