With its various slopes and soil types, Kleine Zalze's vineyards provide each grape variety with the best possible and suitable growing conditions, allowing for maximum expression of varietal character

Regional Information

Zalze wines hail from Kleine Zalze Estate, situated just three kilometres outside of Stellenbosch, South Africa.

Vinification Details

The grapes were harvested separately at sugar levels of 22 and 23° from different blocks. After crushing, the grapes were cold macerated for three days before fermentation started. A combination of pump-overs and punch-downs followed to ensure optimum colour and flavour extraction from the skins. The wine matured for 12 months in third and fourth fill French oak barrels before racking.

Quite impressed

Have never been the keenest fan of S A reds but I purchased 2 bottles on a whim to fulfil the free parking spend of £10 at Waitrose. So glad I did! what a little gem for £5.99,25% off1of few wines I can drink alone but paired with salted almonds, bliss. Did decant for an hour tho, think it def needed it,bags of nicely scented fruit from first sip to last drop, madam loves it too, a winner when on offer

Best red

My husband and I have tried many wines but this is without any doubt our favourite. It is smooth and silky and great for drinking with anything, or on its own.

Favourite Red

We drink this red all the time, it goes well with everything and has a great flavour. I often try other reds when they're on offer but this is the only one I order regularly.

Loved it

Great wine with good body. Great value at this price. Really smooth and a nice depth. Not dry, fruity and would go well with dark meats and cheese. Also nice to drink a glass on its own in my opinion!
