Description

CELLAR INFORMATION After harvest, the 100% Grenache grapes are fermented whole bunch in clay pots, first under a carbonic maceration and then light pump overs. The wine is then aged for 1 year in a single 500 litre Italian clay amphora. There were just 563 bottles of the 2017 vintage produced. VINEYARD INFORMATION The grapes for the Kleine Zalze Project Z Grenache are sourced from an old bush-vine vineyard in the cool-climate region of Darling on the Cape West Coast. Growing untamed and unbridled in sandy soils and subjected to the maritime airflow off the Atlantic Ocean, the vineyard was selected for its ability to grow grapes offering a superior expression of the site’s unique geography.
