Kleine Zalze Cellar Selection Chardonnay
Delicate and fresh with notes of zesty lemon and juicy ripe white peaches. Finishes crisp with lingering mouthcoating fruitiness.
Country: South Africa
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.
