About the wine

Kleine Zalze wines are characterized by a classic structure and complexity, which goes hand in hand with a lively taste intensity. Recognizably South African in style, they are refreshing, well-balanced and good for eating. Our wines are produced using traditional methods with minimal intervention in the cellar, but with modern equipment. The intensity of the New World” with its full fruit aromas combined with the elegance and structure of the Old World” results in wines of character, complexity and balance that reflect our terroir and climate. This sophisticated approach to viticulture and winemaking, as well as the attention to detail and personal touch that goes along with the family business, contribute to the continued success of Kleine Zalze wines.

Shiraz Vineyard Selection
An opulent wine that is full-bodied both on the bouquet and on the palate. The focus is on aromas of plums and dark chocolate with ripe black berries, which are beautifully balanced with a touch of black pepper. A full mouthfeel with strong tannins, which are underpinned by oak, give the wine a special charm, both alone and with food.
Goes very well with hearty meats such as game, lamb or beef. But also spicy dishes.
Most of the grapes for this wine came from our own vines, with a few selected plots from other vineyards in Stellenbosch. All plots were harvested and vinified separately. After manual harvesting, the grapes were sorted and transferred to the “wholeberry” tank, i.e. without crushing. During fermentation, the juice was pumped around regularly to achieve optimal extraction of color and taste. After fermentation, the wines were pressed and transferred to barrels for malolactic fermentation. The wine aged for 22 months in a combination of first (30%), second (30%) and third filling (40%) French oak barrels before the various components were assembled and prepared for bottling.
