Kleine Zalze Vineyard Selection Sauvignon Blanc

3,895 KShs

Intense flavours of gooseberries, kiwi and white flesh peach. The palate reveals, layers: of complexity with mineral structure and fresh peas

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: The 2022 vintage was probably the latest start in history, with very cold weather in spring and very moderate growing conditions, perfect for Sauvignon blanc. The wine was produced from selected dryland vineyards in Stellenbosch (False Bay), Durbanville and Darling. Canopy management involved, an early suckering action and breaking leaves in the bunch zone; to get sufficient sunlight on the bunches at an early stage

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.
