90 pts Tim Atkin MW 2019
Made as a greater Stellenbosch blend, this combines grapes from a number of its sub-regions and is another Kleine Zalze wine that over delivers in the glass. With 40% new wood and plenty of colour and fruit intensity, it's minty and fresh with the balance of the 2017 vintage 2020-2025.
5 Stars (95 pts) 2020 Platter's South African Wine Guide
Deliciously rich dark-berry fruit flavours are supported by black plum, dark chocolate & floral hints, robust tannin frame in 2017. Shows great elegance & precision, benefits from less new oak than older sibling (40%, 18 months). Exceptional value, too, like 2016 (4.5 stars, 94 pts) & equally stellar 2015.
