- 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 the last 17 years has seen the winery evolve into one of the most awarded in Stellenbosch.
The estate places great emphasis on terroir and the influence it has on grapes and flavouring. Kleine Zalze has three tiers of wine, ranging from the flagship Family Reserve range, to the Vineyard Selection and the Cellar Selection.
This wine is a fantastic expression of Sauvignon Blanc, with an intense bouquet of passion fruit and melon backed up by notes of nettle and fresh green asparagus. These flavours follow through on the rich textured palate that has a zesty minerality that also comes through on the lingering finish.
The grapes for this wine were grown in Stellenbosch, Darling, Durbanville, Walker Bay and West Coast regions: cool coastal vineyard sites resulting in a deliciously aromatic Sauvignon.
- The Family Reserve range of wines scored top honours at the annual Veritas Awards with double Gold medals awarded to the Family Reserve Chenin Blanc 2015, the Family Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2009.
