Kleine Zalze wines are marked by a 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. Their wines are made according to traditional methods with minimal cellar intervention but supported by modern equipment.

The intensity of the ‘New World’ with its full fruit flavours combines with the elegance and structure of the ‘Old World’ to yield wines of character, complexity and balance that reflect their terroir and climate. This refined approach to viticulture and wine making, together with the attention to detail and the personal touch that goes with being a family-owned estate, contribute to the ongoing success of Kleine Zalze’s wines.

Tasting notes:
‘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.’ – Platter’s Guide 2020, 5* (95/100)

'Matured for 18 months in French oak, 40% new. The nose shows red and black fruit, violets and fresh herbs. Succulent fruit, vibrant acidity and crunchy tannins on the palate – nicely balanced and possessing real energy' – Christian Eedes, Prescient Cabernet Sauvignon Report 2019, 93/100
