In the midst of winter, we’re keeping busy here at Trizanne Signature Wines. Besides bottling and labelling, we’ve got a few tastings and events coming up in the next 2 months.
We’ve finished the bottling of TSW Sauvignon Blanc 2018 last week as well as the new kid on the block – the Elim Semillon 2017.
Since harvesting my first grapes from this specific Semillon block in Elim back in 2009, I’ve never seen such perfectly healthy grapes in the nine years like we did in 2017. Due to the healthy state of the vineyard I could give the block an extra two weeks of hang time, which is quite significant in the Elim area, considering it’s a cool climate with its fair share of cool climate hiccups come harvest time.
I decided to whole bunch and naturally ferment this specific parcel in 500 Litre French barrels, gave it extended lees contact and 16 months in oak.

The result is a golden  rich, full-bodied wine with beautiful notes of citrus, nuts, and honeysuckle.
Elim Semillon 2017 will be available from
Ex Animo and my online store in August.
I’m also releasing the new vintage of the Darling Barbera 2017.  Since my first go at the wine, it has considerably grown on me.
The vineyard has also improved yearly – showing less stress during ripening even during the drought and delivering uniquely lower-alcohol, phenolically ripe fruit.
 This beautiful sunrise was taken on the day of picking the Barbera.

I will be showcasing the Darling Barbera 2017 for the first time at the Ex Animo Shindig and thereafter it will be available online and from
Ex Animo.
