From the Cellar
The 2018 harvest has turned out to be an exceptionally pleasing one for Jacques, Charles and the cellar team because, despite the drought conditions during the entire growing season, which usually results in high alcohols or low acidity, Zevenwacht have not suffered these challenges. The only real low has been the yields due to much smaller berries on the vines. The quality of the grapes, phenolic ripeness and sugar levels are so far indicative of a truly exceptional vintage. The team have also introduced spontaneous fermentation to add more dimension to some of the Zevenwacht wines this year. So by all accounts, the general feeling is that the vineyards have weathered the dry years particularly well being the adaptive plant that they are and delivered fantastic grapes.
The Zevenwacht Chenin Blanc 2017 and Zevenwacht Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2017 have recently been released and are available in our Online Shop.
Both these wines pair particularly well with various seafood dishes making them ideal choices for traditional or contemporary Easter meals. The Chenin Blanc is partially barrel fermented and has a palate that is rich and refreshing. The Chardonnay has superb and distinctive flavours of citrus and pear with a subtle oak aroma of roasted almonds.
