Zevenwacht Merlot 2004
John Platter - 4 stars
A spicy wine, indicative of the 2004 vintage conditions, that is both complex and generous. The intermingling of the three vineyard sites is apparent, with chocolate and ripe plum and cherry flavours in evidence, complemented by toasty oak and cedar wood aromatics. These barrel promoted flavours will integrate over the next six months and increase the complexity of the wine, both on palate and nose. This is a wine to take pleasure in now but will reward the patient with richness and the development of a silky-soft tannin structure. Charlie’s first ride in the factory – anticipation, admiration all coated with the best ever chocolate.
