Description

bold & opulent

These are the flagship wines in our range. The grapes for these wines are selected from exceptional quality single vineyards on the farm. Only the best new oak barrels are used for maturation and special attention is given throughout the wine making process. Family Reserve wines will be available in limited quantities and only produced in exceptional vintages.

This wine shows blackcurrant, spicy and ripe fruit flavours on the nose. On the palate, there are intense, spicy plum and dark fruit flavours supported by well-integrated oak tannins. Due to its balance, this wine can be matured in the bottle for another ten years.

Viticulture: The grapes were harvested from a single block on our Groote Zalze farm, at sugar levels between 24 ? 25.5ºB. Each of the three main soil types in this block contributed different flavour spectrums. The influence of cool southwesterly winds, combined with the careful soil moisture management, ensured the development of fruit with smaller berries and a stronger flavour concentration.
Vinification: After harvesting, each pocket of fruit was hand sorted to ensure that only the purest fruit was used in the creation of this wine. After a three-day cold maceration period, fermentation started after the wine was inoculated with natural yeast. The perfect balance in the wine?s tannin structure was achieved through a combination of pump overs in stainless steel tanks and punch-downs in open fermenters. Maturation took place for 22 months in 100% new French oak barrels.

Customer evaluation for "Kleine Zalze Family Reserve Shiraz 2012"
Kleine Zalze Family Reserve Shiraz 2007 25 Mar 2011

Dieser Wein hat etwas zu viel Säure

angenehmer Geruch, würziger Abgang aber für meinen Geschmack leider zu viel Säure. Ich würde ihn nur zum Essen empfehlen.
