The Zevenwacht Chenin Blanc flows with a clear and bright golden colour into the glass which creates an appetite for the first sip. On the palate, the rich and medium-bodied white wine that matured in French oak for four months pampers with intensive notes of yellow fruits, especially ripe pineapple and melon are very present and are accompanied by a hint of peach and apricot. Nuances of honey and nuts skilfully round off the multilayered interplay of aromas. The silky texture gives the dry white wine a luxuriously mouth-feel which lingers on the palate for a long time. The Zevenwacht Chenin Blanc goes especially well with delicious curry dishes with juicy chicken. As a companion for fish, light vegetables, asparagus or dishes with creamy sauces, the Zevenwacht Chenin Blanc is also a true taste explosion.

Zevenwacht – family-run Winery

The South-African winery Zevenwacht is run by the family Johnson. Harold and Denise Johnson have bought the farm in 1992 and since then, with great personal commitment, pursue the aim to develop the full potential of this great estate. Together with the winemaker Jacques Viljoen, they have established a simple but effective philosophy: the true quality of a wine starts at the wine slope. This is why the wine farmers of Zevenwacht exclusively plant the best noble grapes and work the land with gentle cultivation methods in order to get the best out of the vines and the grapes growing on them. As a member of the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative (BWI in short), they have also committed to only use natural methods for protecting the vines against diseases and pests. Due to this sustainable cultivation, the Zevenwacht wines perfectly mirror their terroir and feature an unaltered, authentic taste.

Zevenwacht unites Tradition and Modernity

The premium wines of Zevenwacht unite the estate’s long tradition and the modern taste of many gourmets. Authentic aromas and still typical South African character define the products. The family Johnson always succeeds in seamlessly continuing the previously awarded performances with each new vintage. Countless wins and awards at national as well as international competitions give testament to the high standard that Zevenwacht has for itself and its wines.

The Zevenwacht Winery

If you travel along the famous Stellenbosch wine route, you should definitely pay a visit to the winery. The overwhelming panoramic view of the Table Bay and False Bay as well as the Table Mountain alone is worth a visit. The actual Zevenwacht winery covers more than 450 hectares, of which a little less than half is cultivated with noble vines and finest clones. The fantastic cuisine of the restaurant on the estate excites with menus that feature contemporary finesse as well as the typical South African charm.
