Zevenwacht Syrah 2018

Zevenwacht Syrah 2018

The Syrah shows concentrated raspberry and black berry fruit, that opens to a floral perfume with white pepper and herbs on the nose. The palate has dense fruit intensity with a velvety mid palate, that finishes with a fine peppery tannin.

We’ve tried it with a few variations of lamb such as lamb loin chops spiced with salt, black pepper and rosemary, leg of lamb slow roasted, well salted, peppered and served with roast potatoes, sweet potatoes and spicy gravy. Oven roasted vegetables with rosemary and garlic could be a vegan alternative.
Serve: At a pleasing 16 - 18° (not too cold and not our summer room temperature)

Zevenwacht Wine Estate, situated on the beautiful Stellenbosch Wine Route is a modern wine farm with a 300 year history. Owned and managed by the Johnson Family, the Estate has a strong commitment to historic and cultural preservation as well as conservation of the surrounding indigenous environment. Two prime farming locations provide the grapes for the Zevenwacht winery. The home vineyard on the Estate’s panoramic 450 hectare maritime influenced property, supplies the majority of the grapes. The farm Zevenrivieren, situated at the crest of the Helshoogte Pass, provides winemaker, Hagen Viljoen, with a boutique selection of grapes that add to the fascinating variety of the wines
