Kleine Zalze Cellar Selection Pinotage

3,495 KShs

A very elegant and easy drinking expression of Pinotage, the aroma reminds of mulberries and ripe plums, nuanced with a smoky undertone. The wine shows a lot of juicy red fruit on the palate with subtle floral and fynbos notes on the finish

Country: South Africa
Region: Stellenbosch
ABV: 14% vol
Suggested Food Pairings: Excellent on its own, or served with barbecued meat, veal, poultry, pasta and red meat dishes
Remarks: A very elegant and easy drinking expression of Pinotage, the aroma reminds of mulberries and ripe plums, nuanced with a smoky undertone. The wine shows a lot of juicy red fruit on the palate with subtle floral and fynbos notes on the finish. An elegant and supple tannin structure will allow the wine to mature well over the next 5 years. This wine is delightful on its own but can be successfully paired with the quintessential smoky South African braaied meats as well as their vegetable alternatives, or even an aromatic curry

Product Description

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.
