Initial aromas of lime and citrus zest are beautifully intertwined with a virtual ‘fruit salad’ of tropical fruits. These flavours follow on the palate, and combined with the rich texture and elegant minerality, ensure a very long finish.
The grapes for this wine comes from selected vineyards in Stellenbosch and Paarl. Owing to the nature of bush vines, careful canopy management was exercised so that no bunches were exposed to excessive sunlight and an even ripening of the grapes.
Named after Kleine Zalze’s founder Nicolas Cleef who established Kleine Zalze in the 17th century, the Cleefs range of wines are discernibly South African in style; refreshing, beautifully balanced and well suited to food.
