Zevenwacht 7even Rood 2019 (case of 6)
A luscious lifestyle wine with aromas of raspberry and white pepper spice. A juicy palate 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. Enjoy relaxing with good company, anytime, anywhere.

|Cellar||We 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 and to add to the complexity.|
|Vineyard||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.|
