Demorgenzon - DMZ Sauvignon Blanc 2012Plump & Ripe Fruit
Pale, bright gold with green reflections. Upfront aromatics of passion fruit and citrus greet the nose following through to a rich palate yielding ripe fruit flavours with a nettle edge.
A brisk acidity and stony minerality give natural freshness and length.
The fruit for DMZ Sauvignon Blanc is selected from premium trellised vineyards located in cooler areas of the Western Cape namely Faure, Durbanville, Stellenboschkloof and Elgin.
The vines are 6-10 years old. Soils are a combination of weathered granite, shale and sandstone. Sites are chosen that benefit from morning sun exposure, high elevation and exposure to cooling ocean breezes.
