TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Deep, mouth-watering red that appears burgundy in the sunlight.
  • Nose: Dark fruits, plums, and raspberries satisfy the senses in a rich aroma that, while deep, is inviting.
  • Mouth: Soft velvet and smooth tannin give the Cabernet a standard taste that makes it welcoming to wine drinkers of all varieties. Red fruits and gentle spice add to the texture of this palate. A long finish that slowly smooths away to dry tannin is the most noted quality of the wine.

APPELLATION: Stellenbosch

VINEYARD: Kleine Zalze, a vineyard resting within the sunny wine valleys of the Coastal Region of South Africa. The Stellenbosch region is famous for its excellent craft of award-winning wines in South Africa. Internationally recognized as the most prosperous wine country in South Africa, Stellenbosch mostly harvests Cabernet Sauvignons. The gentle slopes, apple sunshine, and clay-concentrated soil make for ideal growth of red grape varieties in particular.

GRAPES: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.

AGEING: Aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.

PREPARATION: The grapes are picked early in the morning. Half are sent to undergo a traditional fermentation in open fermenters while the other half are set in stainless steel tanks. Oxygen is added to the wine. Tannins are extracted and re-infused to give the wine its smooth finish. Afterwards, gravity separates the skin from the fermented wine. Malolactic fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks.

PAIRING: Best served with a steak dinner or lamb and red sauce. Garlic buttered potatoes and charred vegetables will serve as an excellent addition.

RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 12-15°C

ALCOHOL: 14%

Ripe dark pip fruit, fine smoky taste and licorice. The Kleine Zalze Cellar Selection Cabernet Sauvignon shows concentrated, full-bodied, powerful and balanced. Ripe tannins, intense bouquet. Rich in black currant. Fine toasted notes.

4 /5

- This is a very typical Cabernet Sauvignon that shows dark fruit on the nose that follows on to a textured palate with some red fruit and soft and supple tannin profile that gives way to a long finish.
