Tasting notes:
'Over the past two decades or so, Stellenbosch attorney Kobus Basson has developed Kleine Zalze into a model lifestyle wine estate and established a successful and broad range of bottlings, the mid-tier Vineyard Selection label always over-delivering. Aromas of black fruit and earth before a palate that is dense and powerful. Drinking Window 2020 - 2026.' – Decanter, 91/100

'Initially showing quite a robust nose with lots of ripe dark berry fruits giving way to notes of cedar wood and spice. A dense palate which is packed with ripe fruit give one idea to expect a burley heavy wine, however, the fine grained tannins and lively acidity ensure a very elegant palate that dances for a long lingering finish. A fantastic companion to most meat dishes and will also reward careful cellaring for at least 8 years.' – Winemaker

Alc: 14% | RS: 3.2 g/L | TA: 5.8 g/L | PH: 3.44

Tasting notes on the 2017 vintage:
'Deliciously rich dark-berry fruit flavours are supported by black plum, dark chocolate & floral hints, robust tannin frame in 2017. Shows great elegance & precision, benefits from less new oak than older sibling (40%, 18 months). Exceptional value, too, like 2016 (4.5 stars, 94 pts) & equally stellar 2015.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)

'Matured for 18 months in French oak, 40% new. The nose shows red and black fruit, violets and fresh herbs. Succulent fruit, vibrant acidity and crunchy tannins on the palate – nicely balanced and possessing real energy.' – Christian Eedes, Prescient Cabernet Sauvignon Report 2019, 93/100
