Happy Easter with Zevenwacht Wine Estate

Happy Easter with Zevenwacht Wine Estate
published on:

The 2019 harvest was generally a challenging one with a lot of uneven bud-break and fruit set in the vineyards making for difficult decisions on when to pick the fruit. Fortunately, the ripening conditions were optimal from September onwards, with cool evenings, allowing the grapes to develop at a steady pace during the season and even out.

Harvest 2019
For those who were not too hasty to pick, there is some exceptional quality to be found in the vintage. Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay are looking promising for the whites and the reds generally looking good across the board with phenolic ripeness being achieved at slightly lower alcohols than normal.

As always, we experimented with a few different techniques in the cellar- from a skin-fermented Gewurztraminer to an old vine Chenin Blanc fermented in a concrete egg to a vine dried Muscat Blanc - we have a few exciting things bubbling away in the cellar, so watch this space!

Seven Days of Shiraz and Venison 10 to 17 June 2019
Zevenwacht will be joining the week-long celebration of South African Shiraz and venison in association with Shiraz SA organisation. The Wine Tasting Centre will be presenting a pairing of venison biltong & carpaccio with 3 Shiraz based wines @ R60.00 per person.

Visit the Zevenwacht Restaurant to enjoy either the Venison pie accompanied by pumpkin fritter and seasonal vegetables with a 250ml carafe of The Tin Mine Red (a Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre blend) @ R170.00 per person or a Char-grilled Eland loin with potato fondant and caramelised baby carrots with a blueberry and Syrah jus paired with a 250ml carafe of Estate Syrah @ R240.00 per person.

Wine for thought - Syrah vs Shiraz - both the same grape but using the name Syrah indicates the elegant French-style of wine.
