The Family Reserve selection are the flagship wines in the Kleine Zalze portfolio. The grapes for these wines are selected from exceptional single vineyards with a track record of delivering extraordinary grapes. Only the best oak barrels are used for maturation and special attention is given throughout the wine making process. Family Reserve wines are timeless, classic, and elegant with linear structure and cultivar specific fruit vibrancy. Quantities are limited.
Kleine Zalze Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
An intense bouquet that shows savoury tobacco notes along with liquorice and mint with a deep core of black plum and cassis. The palate shows a density and depth of flavor only found in the best vintages. An opulent entry of the dark fruit seen on the nose gives way to vibrant back palate with a refreshing acidity.
Despite the wine’s ‘broad shoulders’ it maintains a svelte structure and almost never ending finish. A brilliant example of how great Stellenbosch Cabernet can be, highlighting the perfect balance between new-world opulence and old-world elegance.
