Kleine Zalze Vineyard Selection Barrel Fermented Chenin Blanc Stellenbosch Rsa 2008

Member Review by LiveTheLife:

On the nose, there are concentrated aromas of tropical fruit and French oak wood flavours. Ripe peach, layers of tropical fruit give this wine a rich and creamy mouth feel, with an elegant acidity in the background. Enjoy now or mature for 3 – 5 years. Kleine Zalze wine has been made since 1695 !!! check kleinezalze.co.za for more info ... PS: The bottle is full of award-winning stickers, well 6 to be exact : 2007 south african wine producer of the year, 2010 chenin blanc challenge winner, Investec Private winemakers' choice award 2009, Veritas 2009, Gold @ the international wine challenge 2009 & Gold @ the Mundus Vini

Chenin Blanc Barrel Fermented 2008 - Kleine Zalze: Chenin Blanc Barrel Fermented 2008 - Weißwein von Kleine Zalze Dieser herrlich konzentrierte und cremige Wein leuchtet im Glas strohgelb. Mit seinem enorm kraftvollen Aromenspiel aus süßen gelben Früchten, Honig und etwas Rauch erfreut er die Nase. Deutsche Holzaromen sind dabei deutlich zu erkennen. Am Gaumen zeigt der Chenin Blanc Barrel Fermented 2008 eine leicht wahrnehmbare Süße, die Aromen erinnern an tropische Früchte, wie Ananas, Pfirsich und Aprikosen. Die rauchigen Aromen vom Fassausbau lassen Karamell erahnen. Insgesamt ist dieser Weißwein sehr harmonisch mit einem eleganten Säurespiel, der eine feine Cremigkeit am Gaumen hinterlässt und lange nachhallt.Besonders zu gegrillten Edelfischen, Meeresfrüchten und gegrilltem Chili Chicken ist dieser Wein zu empfehlen.Weingut: Kleine ZalzeLand: SüdafrikaRegion: StellenboschRebsorte: 100% Chenin BlancInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 15,0 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,25 g/lRestsüße: trockenFassreife: in Barriques gereiftLagerfähigkeit: 1-2 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 6-8 °C Weißwein > Südafrika > Stellenbosch
