Intro to Kleine Zalze Vineyard Selection Chenin Blanc –

Full tasting note & wine making –
Kleine Zalze Vineyard Selection Chenin Blanc from Stellenbosch has concentrated aromas of tropical, peach and lychee fruit with hints of honey that is all balanced by delicate French oak wood flavours. Ripe layers of tropical fruit, both combined with subtle wood give this wine a good length of fruit and creamy mouth feel, with an elegant acidity in the background. The fermentation process was started in stainless steel tanks; subsequently the juice was transferred halfway through fermentation into oak of which 20% was new barrels. Fermentation was completed in the barrels at a controlled temperature. Lees contact was given throughout the 7-month barrel maturation period.
Hand-harvested premium grapes from some of the oldest vines on the estate are used to produce this rich Chenin with a gently tropical nose of honeysuckle and pineapple with fresh green apple and subtle oak.
The producer –
Kleine Zalze is a family owned winery situated in the heart of the Cape Winelands. Winemaking has taken place there 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. In 1996 the estate’s soils were scientifically mapped, evaluated and replanted according to their specific terroir characteristics and potential. Continuous investment over more than 20 years has seen the winery evolve into one of the most awarded in Stellenbosch.
Kleine Zalze wines are marked by classical structure and complexity matched by a vibrant flavour intensity. Discernibly South African in style, they are refreshing, beautifully balanced and well suited to food. They are made according to traditional methods, with minimal cellar intervention but supported by modern winemaking equipment.
