Characteristics



Tasting Notes

Pale gold in colour with a muted grassiness on the nose, this elegant wine is crisp, fresh and dry. Full bodied and well-integrated, the Zevenwacht Blanc de Blanc makes an immediate impact on the palate, filling the mouth with its complex flavours. It finishes with a satisfying, long aftertaste. The perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of foods - especially fish, chicken, lamp and creamy-sauced pasta dishes. Restaurant description: tyles of meat.??????¼?¾?¾?¾???¾d??.

Blend Information

Blend

In The Cellar

Vineyard Notes: 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. No additional irrigation is necessary. Vinification: The wine is an unwooded blend of the following grapes Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Rhine Riesling and South African Riesling. Fermented separately in stainless steel tanks, blended shortly after fermentation and bottled very early to retain freshness and vitality.
