|The grapes for this wine were sourced from selected parcels of fruit from across the Western Cape. Careful attention was paid to our viticulture practices to ensure optimum ripening conditions in the canopy and to achieve physiological ripeness. As always, a very careful ‘green harvest’ was carried out just after veraison to ensure even ripening and a good concentration of flavours
Kleine Zalze Cellar Selection Merlot
As always our Merlot show the typical characters of ripe red fruit followed by juicy fruit on the palate. The relatively warm and dry conditions led to a wine that is quite concentrated on the palate and has a good firm tannin profile and structure which will pair well with food. The fresh and natural acidity ensures a vibrant and lingering finish.
