Kleine Zalze Granite Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

This ‘one barrel selection’ wine was crafted from a small portion of hard-rock granite soil from the famous Cabernet Sauvignon block on the hill, where the Kleine Zalze Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon originates from. Water retention in these specific rows is ideal, providing excellent drainage and balanced growth. Each bunch of grapes was hand selected according to pip ripeness. This wine was matured for 27 months in a new French oak Taransaud barrel before bottling. Tasting Notes: Waves of deep-piled forest fruit, a hint of rich, dark leafy and gamey notes with a pure, savoury, alluring combination of tomato leaf, black berries and cedar wood flavours on the palate. The 2012 vintage is a vintage of pure grape Cabernet fruit and delivers a long, lingering aftertaste with the white cedar oak tannin.
