Tasting Notes

Lime green in colour with a muted grassiness on the nose, this elegant wine is crisp, fresh and dry. Full bodied and well-integrated, the Zevenblanc makes an immediate impact on the palate, filling the mouth with its complex flavours and a satisfying, long after-taste. Hayrides and picnics on a Summer day - crisp, sweet straw and immensely drinkable.
Available in cork and screwcap.

Blend Information

77% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Semillon, 3% Novelle

Food Suggestions

A delicious lifestyle wine with a fresh intensity and lashings of tropical fruit and green fig flavours.

In The Vineyard

The grapes for this well-integrated, blended wine were harvested at ideal ripeness from the temperate slopes that form the sweeping amphitheatre of vineyards that encircle the Zevenwacht cellar. Each varietal is planted in the soil and micro-climate best suited to it. Benefiting from the cooler temperatures of their elevation, the vineyards are well exposed to the maritime influences of False Bay and Table Bay. The mature vines are planted in deep Hutton soil with a water-retaining, clay under-layer.

In The Cellar

This wine is an unwooded blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Novelle. All 3 varieties were fermented separately in stainless steel tanks at 12° -14° C, blended shortly after fermentation and bottled early to retain freshness and vitality.
