- 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.
Concentrated aromas of pear and white peach on the nose with layers of citrus and honeysuckle on the palate. Elegant fruit and integrated French oak flavours give this wine a creamy mouth feel and a long, fresh, ultra clean finish.
- ''A bright, zesty style following through to honey and a tang of citrus, with a spicy edge to the finish.' Sarah Jane Evans MW, team leader. 'A great Chenin Blanc, showing provenance and a fruit profile at its best, with stone fruits and light notes of honey and hay veneered with vanilla. On the palate it's creamy and rich, with fresh acidity and a smooth texture. This would be great with seafood, pork or poultry.' Jurijs Nemkovs, StreetXO' - Sommelier Wine Awards
- 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.
