Awards, Reviews and other Notes

4 ½ Stars 2019 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Superb expression of exceptional 15 (93 pts) vintage, deep blackcurrant, polished leather, intense violet on firm, well structured backbone of fine tannin, 75% new oak in support. Generosity of texture & depth made for the long haul.



Winemaker Notes

The fruit for this wine were sourced from just 2 specific vineyard blocks on our farm. The relatively wet winter season meant that no supplementary irrigation was needed and a good balance of fruit concentration and elegance was achieved with very little intervention. Moderate day-time and cool night-time temperatures during the ripening period meant that we had very good flavour development in the fruit prior harvest.
An intense bouquet of cassis and currants give way to a full palate of opulent dark fruit which is followed by hints fynbos and a finely structure on the back palate. The fine grained tannin profile gives this wine great structure, yet without compromising Kleine Zalze’s signature elegance. A brilliant example of how great Stellenbosch Cabernet can be, highlighting the perfect balance between new-world opulence and old-world elegance.
