Kleine Zalze, Vineyard Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, 2019
Region: Stellenbosch, Coastal Region, South Africa
Bottle size: 75cl
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon
Notes: Vegetarian and Vegan
This is a classic Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon. The bouquet is filled with layers of dark fruits and just the slightest hint of herbaceous freshness. A dense palate which is packed with svelte tannins that are beautifully balanced by the cassis and blackberry fruit notes which linger seductively on the back palate. This wine combines the best of new world fruit and old world elegance! A fantastic companion to most hearty meat dishes
Kleine Zalze is our family-owned winery situated in the heart of the Cape Winelands, just two miles from Stellenbosch. Winemaking has taken place on our estate on a small scale since 1695 but it was in 1996, when Kobus Basson and his family purchased the property, that the modern Kleine Zalze was born. The philosophy is simple: success begins in the vineyards. Exceptional wines are made possible by selecting varieties and clones specifically suited to the various soils and slopes, and further careful management of the farm’s extensive natural assets. This continuous attention to detail culminated in Kleine Zalze achieving new heights in 2020 and being named Top Performing Winery of the Year by Platter’s South African wine guide, arguably the most comprehensive guide to South African wine in the world.
