Zevenwacht 7even Rood
A luscious lifestyle wine with hints of red raspberry fruit and white pepper spice, giving a first impression of red berries and chocolate with slight cedar wood undertones. Soft pliable tannins lend subtle support to the structure, yet are unobtrusive on the succulent palate. A delicious blend of Shiraz, Grenache, and Mourvedre.
The grapes for this blend originate from prime vineyard sites that have been planted with new clone material. Rhone-style was used to achieve soft tannins and ripe dark fruits. 4th and 5th fill French 500L barrels were used to mature this wine and to add to the complexity.
Zevenwacht is an historic estate in the Stellenbosch area producing distinctive wines with strong terroir-specific characteristics. Farming some 330 acres of vineyard, viticulturist and winemaker Hagen Viljoen is a technology leader in the Cape and works to maintain the revitalization of the estates reputation for producing outstanding wines that has occurred under the guidance of the Johnson family.
The wine pairs well with grilled meats, stews and pasta dishes.
