About this Item

Family Reserve Chenin Blanc, 2015
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

Located on the outskirts of Stellenbosch, combining accommodation, dining, golf and wine, Kleine Zalze Estate offers the complete winelands tourism destination. Due to their extensive commercial success, Kleine Zalze is often overlooked for their ability to compete with the best, especially at the high end of the market.

Family Reserve represents the best of what Kleine Zalze has to offer, produced in limited quantities and only in exceptional vintages.

Notes

Due to time constraints set upon us with the COVID-19 Lockdown no original bottle shots were taken.

Critics Ratings

The Family Reserve Chenin Blanc has made the Standard Bank Top 10 list almost every year since its inception in 2014, and this vintage is no exception, raking in a whole array of awards that include:

  • Veritas 2017 – Double Gold
  • Michelangelo International Wine & Spirits Awards 2017 - Gold
  • John Platter Wine Guide 2017 – 5 Star
  • Six Nations Wine Challenge 2016 - Gold
  • Standard Bank Chenin Blanc Top 10 Challenge 2016

This wine already has an impressive track record but the 2015 is spectacular. Pear and white peach plus hay, honeysuckle and fynbos on the nose while the palate shows extraordinary fruit purity and driving acidity before a little phenolic grip on the finish thanks to pre-ferment skln contact. Crystalline in structure.’ – Christian Eedes Winemag.co.za 2016, 95 Points

'Barrel fermented / aged flagship 2015 remains variety-true: quince & hay, vibrant freshness, extended finish. No fining, filtration. Great and long life ahead’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2017, 5*
