The NWC aims to identify winning wines by cultivar and blend with medals awarded for the topscoring wines. The Top 100 highest scoring wines earn a place in the coveted Top 100 SA Wines 2018.
Zevenwacht achieved two spots in the Top 100 with the Zevenwacht Z Collection Reserve 2014 and Zevenwacht Z Collection 360° Sauvignon Blanc 2017. Both these wines were also awarded NWC Double Platinum awards.
Double Gold awards were received for the Zevenwacht Merlot 2015, Syrah 2016 and Sauvignon Blanc 2017 as well as the flagship blend, The Tin Mine white 2017 with Silver Awards going to the Zevenwacht Chardonnay 2017 and Cabernet Sauvignon 2015.
Achieving a total of eight awards is exceptionally gratifying says Jacques Viljoen, Zevenwacht Cellarmaster, who attributes these results to consistent vineyard management together with an emphasis on producing wines reflective of their terroir and unique characteristics. It goes without saying that these achievements are possible thanks to the contribution of winemaker, Charles Lourens and our fantastic cellar team.
