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. The partialy shaded fruit (20% of the blend) was tank fermented at a cool fermentation temperature, hovering around 14° C. This helped to express the ripe tropical fruit character of the variety. The balance (80%) was barrel fermented and aged for 8 months on the lees to add to the complexity and rich mouth feel of the wine. The result is something really quite brilliant.

A clear and bright wine with hints of lime and gold. The palate is both rich and refreshing and contains elements of honey, nuts and ripe pineapple and hints of yellow peach. The wine is classically dry, yet luxuriously silky with superb viscosity and length.
