Wine Review: This fresh and tasty South African Sauvignon Blanc is a very pale straw color and opens with a bouquet of yellow grapefruit, herbs and wet slate. It is light plus bodied with nicely balanced acidity and flavors of lime, green pepper and honeydew mellow with hints of integrated minerality. In the coming warm weather months this crisp wine will go great with some fried oysters. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: DMZ is DeMorgenzon's value label, where the objective is to produce classic, elegant, well-balanced wines which over-deliver in terms of quality for price. Upfront aromatics of passion fruit and citrus greet the nose following through to a rich palate that yields ripe fruit flavors with a nettle edge. A brisk acidity and stony minerality give natural freshness and length.

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
