Tasting Notes

Dark cherry red. The nose bursts out of the glass with ripe mulberries gradually developing into 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

71% Shiraz, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 3% 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 French Oak, half the barrels 2nd fill and the other half 3rd fill. After 8 months in select barrels the wine was blended and returned to the barrel for a further 4 months to ensure optimum integration and marriage of the cultivars and the wood.
