DeMorgenzon Garden Vineyards Rosé 2017
This is a crowd pleasing rosé, perfect balance of fruitiness and acidity
2017 was another hot and dry vintage in the Cape. Although the day time temperatures were warm, evening temperatures were much cooler than normal resulting in wines with incredible weight and texture, yet with great acidity and length. The grapes were handpicked and selected in the early morning. Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Viognier 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. The varietal blend is 41% Syrah, 22% Grenache Noir, 18% Mourvèdre, 16% Cinsault, 3% Viognier.
On the nose are delicious aromas of of cherries and strawberry, followed by an array of summer fruits. The pallet is accented with delicate floral and spice nuances. The balance is perfect with a crisp, dry finish.
