Kleine Zalze Cellar Selection Chardonnay

2,895 KShs

Delicate and fresh with notes of zesty lemon and juicy ripe white peaches. Finishes crisp with lingering mouthcoating fruitiness.

Country: South Africa
Region: Stellenbosch
ABV: 13.5% vol
Suggested Food Pairings: Excellent on its own, or served with barbecued meat, veal, poultry, pasta and red meat dishes
Remarks: Very cold and wet winter in 2021 (perfect for Chardonnay) ensured even budding for the Chardonnays and a normal size crop compared to the previous years. Moderate summer days with cold evenings was the perfect setting for a great 2022 harvest. The higher altitude Stellenbosch vineyards that face False Bay contributed texture and fruit, while the Robertson and Bonnievale vineyards generally contribute more minerality owing to the limestone-based soils.

Kleine Zalze is an award-winning winery situated in the heart of the Cape Winelands, just two miles from: Stellenbosch. Winemaking has taken place on our estate 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.
Our philosophy is simple: success begins in the vineyards. Exceptional wines are made possible by selecting varieties and clones specifically suited to the various soils and slopes, and further careful management of the farm’s extensive natural assets.

This continuous attention to detail culminated in Kleine Zalze achieving new heights in 2020 and being named Top Performing Winery of the Year by Platter’s South African wine guide, arguably the most comprehensive guide to South African wine in the world.
