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 influence property, supplies the majority of the grapes. The farm Zevenrivieren, situated at the crest of the Helshoogte Pass, provides winemaker, Jacques Viljoen, with a boutique selection of grapes that add to the fascinating variety of the wines. A vibrant dark cherry colour, with aromas of coffee, plum and chocolate and smoked vanilla undertones. Background hints of cedar wood and liquorice. The palate is rich and generous with ripe cherry flavours and hints of liquorice, chocolate and coffee enhanced by subtle barrel maturation. Try this wine with an array of smoked food such as smoked snoek, chicken or mussels, or with Pizza topped with Parma ham, rocket and some parmesan shavings. A decadent treat is sipping this vibrant wine while enjoying your chocolate brownie, topped with vanilla ice-cream and berry goulash. Quite a choice so be inventive with your own creations!
