The grapes for this wine were sourced from selected parcels of fruit from across the Western Cape. Although most regions received good rainfall during the season, the after-effects of the preceding three-year drought was still visible, and vineyards and soils will take some time to recover. It is for this reason that careful attention was paid to our viticulture practices to ensure optimum ripening conditions, such as performing green harvests on bunches after veraison, and harvesting only once physiological ripeness is reached.
Kleine Zalze Cellar Selection Cabernet Merlot
The 2 varieties were carefully blended to highlight the ripe dark plum Cabernet fruit on the nose and palate with Merlot contributing savoury characters and velvety tannins. This is an elegant wine with great depth of flavour, elegant wood integration and supple structure.
