Kleine Zalze Family Reserve Shiraz, Stellenbosch

Kleine Zalze Family Reserve Shiraz, Stellenbosch

The grapes are harvested from a single block on the Groote Zalze farm: each of the three main soil types in this block contributed different flavour spectrums. The perfect balance in the wine’s tannin structure is achieved through a combination of pumping over in stainless steel tanks and punching down in open fermenters. Maturation takes place for 22 months in new French oak barrels. This wine shows blackcurrant, spicy and ripe fruit aromas on the nose. There are intense, spicy plum and dark fruit flavours supported by well-integrated oak tannins.
