With a wonderful and characteristic play of aromas of ripe berries, cedar and pepper, the Kleine Zalze Vineyard Selection Shiraz pampers the senses. On the palate, the fruity nuances are accompanied by toasty aromas and a good tannin structure. Enjoy this well-balanced red wine, which has been aged for 21 months in French oak, best with dark meat or game, but the Kleine Zalze Vineyard Selection Shiraz is also a treat on its own.

The Intensity of the New World at Kleine Zalze Wines

The wines of Kleine Zalze Wines are well structured and balanced. Unparalleled is the wonderfully powerful South African fruit which defines the prominent character of the wines.

The premium wines bearing a Vineyard Selection label benefit from the prime location of their vines. The Family Reserve line includes true Top wines such as the Kleine Zalze Chenin Blanc or Pinotage. Made for sophisticated gourmets!

Outstanding Climatic Conditions for the Cultivation

The South African winery Kleine Zalze is located less than three kilometres away from Stellenbosch. It was founded by Nicholas Cleef in 1683. None other than the founding father of South African wine cultivation, Simon van der Stel, was involved here and planted the first vines. Today’s winery Kleine Zalze Wines is owned by Kobus Basson. On approximately 100 hectares cultivation area, the winemaking team plants the grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Chenin Blanc as well as Chardonnay, Pinotage, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc.
The climatic conditions are perfectly suited for the cultivation of red and white wines alike. The climate with its Mediterranean and warm, sunny summers offers sufficient light intensity for the vineyards. The temperatures are between 26 and 36 degree Celsius. The winter months are pleasantly cool with their 15 degree Celsius but also never too cold. Furthermore, some of the higher located cultivation areas are advantageous since fresh sea breezes ideally cool the vines during the hot summers. As the vineyard is the beginning for the creation of great wines, the team leaves no stone unturned to produce the best grapes, from which the award-winning wines are made in the wine cellar. The efforts are rewarded – in 2021, Platter's Wine Guide named Kleine Zalze "Winery of the Year".
