Cape Winemakers Guild

DeMorgenzon Gravitas 2017

The grape varieties are fermented separately in concrete and stainless steel. Fermentation of whole berries with a percentage whole bunch is concluded without yeast addition. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation is followed by 18 months ageing in used French oak cask. Bottled without filtration.

Tasting Notes: Floral and spice aromas are complemented by a concentrated core of juicy berry fruit. The palate is structured and tightly packed with fine tannin. The finish is dry and refreshing.

Ready for drinking in 2020 with further maturation until 2030.

Winemaker: Carl van der Merwe – Resigned Member
