‘Impressive value from RJ Botha and the Kleine Zalze team, this is a smooth, textured, glossy Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon, with plenty of body, 40% new wood, dried herb, chocolate and blackcurrant flavours and a fresh finish. 2022-27’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 91/100

'Long track record for exceptional quality & value, styled to drink on release & age gracefully. 2018’s crimson hue draws you in to rich yet elegant cassis, cigarbox & cedar aromas & flavours. 40% new oak, 18 months, adds black olive, nutmeg & allspice savouriness with precision also noted in standout 2017 (5 stars, 95 pts).' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'RJ Botha has a special touch when it comes to Cabernet Sauvignon, even at this very affordable price level. Ambitious, structured and layered, with 40% new wood, cassis, bramble, liquorice and cedarwood flavours and the acidity and tannic backbone to develop further in bottle. Drink 2022-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 91/100

'Over the past two decades or so, Stellenbosch attorney Kobus Basson has developed Kleine Zalze into a model lifestyle wine estate and established a successful and broad range of bottlings, the mid-tier Vineyard Selection label always over-delivering. Aromas of black fruit and earth before a palate that is dense and powerful. Drinking Window 2020 - 2026.' – Decanter, 91/100 'This wine is a classically structured Cabernet that speaks more of refinement and elegance than of power and weight. Initially a closed bouquet will openup, in the glass, to intense dark fruit followed by wet fynbos. These flavours follow on the palate with cassis and black cherries being supported by a subtle herbaceous note. An elegantly structured wine that lingers almost unendingly on the back palate. A fantastic companion to most meat dishes and will also reward careful cellaring for at least 8 years.' – Klein Zalze
