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.
in the vineyard : Our two most aromatic varietals on the farm compose this wine. These cultivars have beautiful fruit and spicy floral aromas. The vineyards are situated on South-West facing slopes with a North-South row direction for optimal sun exposure and flavour development.
about the harvest: Grapes were harvested between 22 – 23.5 degrees Balling.
in the cellar : The wine was tank fermented separately at 14 degrees Celsius to retain fresh fruit and floral aromas. They were blended shortly after fermentation and bottled early to retain freshness and vitality.
