A medium red wine from South Africa's famous Stellenbosch region.
With careful blending Kleine Zalze have been able to produce some fantastically pure wines with good fruit definition and wonderful elegance.The wine was matured for 24 months in first (40%), second (30%) and third fill (30%) French oak barrels.
The wine shows the great density of flavour which is typical of our Shiraz. Initial aromas of black berries followed by hints of spice. These flavours follow seamlessly on the palate with a bold, yet refined tannin profile that we believe gives the wine great ageing potential. Although drinking well now, will reward careful cellaring.
Try me with grilled and roasted red meats, Italian dishes & mature strong cheeses.
Grape Variety: Shiraz
Country: South Africa
