Description

Kleine Zalze Project Z Chenin Blanc is a South African white wine made from grapes sourced from the Stellenbosch wine growing region. Kleine Zalze’s Project Z range of wines is a that allows the estate’s winemakers free reign to interact with nature, to search for the ultimate expression from a vineyard and to push the boundaries of creativity and innovation in order to keep growing and evolving. As well as this superb Grenache, there is also a Project Z Chenin Blanc, Chenin Blanc Skin Contact, Syrah and Sweet Fortified wine.

Kleine Zalze is a family owned winery situated in the heart of the Cape Winelands and winemaking their can be traced back to 1695. However, when Kobus Basson and his family bought the property in 1996, there was a massive stride forward. In 1996 the estate was scientifically mapped to find the best terroir for different grape varieties and seventeen years of subsequent investment have seen Kleine Zalze become one of the most highly regarded wineries in South Africa.

The grapes for Kleine Zalze Project Z Chenin Blanc 2018 were sourced from a vineyard over four decades old in the Firgrove region of Stellenbosch. Growing on clay and decomposed granite and subjected to the maritime airflow off the Atlantic Ocean at False Bay, the vineyard was selected for its ability to grow grapes offering a superior expression of the site’s unique geography. After harvest the grapes have overnight skin contact, and are then fermented and aged for 10 months on lees in amphora.

There were just 426 bottles of the 2018 vintage produced.

Tasting Notes

Kleine Zalze Project Z Chenin Blanc  is voluptuous & statuesque, stylish & flavourful. Superbly poised on an acid & mineral backbone. Pear, peach, apple plus some yeasty complexity on the nose. The palate shows impressive richness and bright acidity before a savoury finish.
