Kleine Zalze Wine Estate

Situated within the estate, Kleine Zalze wines are marked by a classical structure and complexity matched by a vibrant flavour intensity. Discernibly South African in style, they are refreshing, beautifully balanced and well-suited to food. The wines are made according to traditional methods with minimal cellar intervention, but supported by modern equipment. The intensity of the ‘New World’ with its full fruit flavours combines with the elegance and structure of the ‘Old World’ to yield wines of character, complexity and balance that reflect the terroir and climate. This refined approach to viticulture and wine making, together with the attention to detail and the personal touch that goes with being a family-owned estate, contribute to the ongoing success of Kleine Zalze’s wines.
