7even Syrah is a luscious lifestyle wine with aromas of raspberry and white pepper spice. A juicy palate or 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. 7even Syrah is great with seared tuna served on a bed of baby spinach, lamb chops braaied to perfection, or sweet & sticky pork ribs. A vegan option is also wild mushroom risotto – simply enjoyable.
The grapes for this blend originate from prime vineyard sites that have been planted with new clone material. Most of the sites face southwest and receive supplementary irrigation resulting in optimal ripeness, superbly concentrated flavours and ripe, supple tannins. A clay sub-soil retains essential moisture and the gravelly, granite derived topsoil allows for effective drainage. They aimed for soft tannins and ripe dark fruits and used Rhone style varieties to achieve this. 500L Seasoned French oak barrels were used to mature this wine for 12 months and to add to the complexity.
Zevenwacht Wine Estate is owned by the Johnson family and is situated on the Southernmost slopes of the Bottelary Hills in Stellenbosch. This beautiful property has its vineyards overlooking Cape Town and is influenced by its proximity to the ocean and the cooling South-Easter wind, making wines with great fruit purity and elegance. The sister property in the Banhoek Valley is a warmer site with heavier soils and provides cellar master, Hagen Viljoen, with more structured and powerful components to work with when blending.
