Kleine Zalze Family Reserve Shiraz 2016

The wine shows great intensity of aroma and flavour, which is typical of the great 2016 vintage. Intense aromas of bramble berries give way to notes of plum and scrub herbs. A bold entry of ripe fruit is backed up by dense, yet fine grained tannin structure that gives the palate weight while not compromising vibrancy and elegance. While delicious now this wine will only improve over time and should reward careful cellaring for up to 10 years.

Vineyard
Grapes were harvested from two blocks on our Groote Zalze
farm. Each block contributing its own, unique character to
this wine. The relatively wet winter season meant that no
supplementary irrigation was needed and a good balance of
fruit concentration and elegance was achieved with very
little intervention. Moderate day-time and cool night-time
temperatures during the ripening period meant that we had
very good flavour development in the fruit prior harvest.
Winemaking
Grapes were hand harvested early in the morning, destemmed and sorted before being transferred to stainless
steel tank for fermentation. The perfect structure in the wine
was achieved through a combination of open and closed
pump overs and careful monitoring to ensure the best
balance possible. Maturation took place for 19 months in
70% new French oak barrels.
Vintages
Moderate day-time and cool night-time temperatures during the ripening period meant that we
had very good flavour development in the fruit prior to harvest.
