Deliciously creamy Chenin Blanc

  • Aromas of lime, ripe melon and apple fruit on the nose that are complemented by layers of citrus, herbs and toast on the palate. Complex well integrated French oak flavours give this wine a creamy mouth feel and an elegant finish.
  • Halfway through fermentation, the wine was transferred into oak barrels of which 30% was new with a 12-month barrel maturation.
  • The grapes are selected from exceptional quality single vineyards across the Kleine Zalze estate.
  • Kleine Zalze is a family owned winery situated in the heart of the Cape Winelands. Winemaking has taken place there on a small scale since 1695.
  • When Kobus Basson and his family purchased the property in 1996, the estate's soils were scientifically mapped, evaluated and replanted according to their specific terroir characteristics and and potential.

''A bright, zesty style following through to honey and a tang of citrus, with a spicy edge to the finish.' Sarah Jane Evans MW, team leader. 'A great Chenin Blanc, showing provenance and a fruit profile at its best, with stone fruits and light notes of honey and hay veneered with vanilla. On the palate it's creamy and rich, with fresh acidity and a smooth texture. This would be great with seafood, pork or poultry.' Jurijs Nemkovs, StreetXO' - Sommelier Wine Awards

This oak aged Chenin Blanc is an absolute must-try; it's got all the acidity and flavours that you'd expect fom a Chenin but also this lovely creaminess on the palate that is just sensational. - Min Yee Tseu, OWC
