Tasting Notes

Youthful dark, cherry red. The nose bursts out of the glass with ripe mulberries gradually developing in to red berries and vanilla with a slow release of mocha and dark chocolate. The palate impresses with density on entry matched with persistent yet supple tannins - a multi-layered wine. This texture is perfectly offset by balanced acidity that allows for a remarkable length of finish.

Ageing Potential

A delicious wine to be enjoyed now or over the next five years.

Blend Information

59% Shiraz, 16% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Primitivo

In The Vineyard

Zevenwacht is situated on the first rise in topography after the waves of the icy Atlantic Ocean have hit the shoreline of False Bay. The prevailing winds are Southeasterly and gust over the cold water, leaving their signature pervasive cool mistiness in the hills during the summer months. The decomposed granite soils include desirable clay elements that retain moisture during the drier months of ripening, yet, as a result of the prominent gravel fractions, allow for excellent drainage.

In The Cellar

This blend has been aged in 20% American Oak and 80% French Oak barrels for 12 months.
