Inky Red with youthful purple hints. The nose bursts out of the glass with crushed berries, mocha and fine cedar wood aromas – a combination of both classical and new world scents. The palate impresses with density on entry matched with persistent yet supple tannins. This texture is perfectly offset by balanced acidity that allows for a remarkable length of finish.

ageing : A delicious wine to be savoured now or over the next five years.

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 : A blend of 51% Shiraz, 26% Merlot .and 23% Cabernet Sauvignon which has been aged in 50% American Oak 50% French Oak.
