5 Stars 2017 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
With 5 Chenins, Kleine Zalze showcases the variety, demonstrates stylistic expertise. Barrel fermented/aged flagship 15 (*****) remains variety-true: quince & hay, vibrant freshness, extended finish. No fining, filtration. Great & long life ahead, as with 14.



Winemaker Notes

This Family Reserve Chenin Blanc 2015 was crafted from three different wards and soils (Decomposed Granite, Oakleaf and Duplex) in Stellenbosch, each contributing to the complexity of this wine. These vineyards are very old unirrigated bush vines. The canopy of the bush vines were suckered and tipped to ensure a cool micro climate around the grapes with no direct sun and without botrytis.

Concentrated aromas of pear, white peach and fynbos on the nose with layers of citrus and honeysuckle on the palate. Elegant fruit and integrated French oak flavours give this wine a creamy mouth feel and a long, fresh, earthy finish. Enjoy now or mature up to 15 years at optimum storage conditions.
