MENU's Wine of the Week is Kleine Zalze Vineyard Selection 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon

We tasted several superb wines today at two different wine events. This was the wine that impressed us the most. It was one of the Top 10 Cabernet Sauvignons at today's Prescient Report where it scored 93 points. The winemaker R J Botha says that it has just been released, so it should be available in retail wine shops very soon

Lovely mulberry fruit on the rich nose. Silky soft on the palate, with layers of cassis, cherry and mulberry fruit; very soft chalky tannins, freshness and good wood support. This wine is already very accessible and will continue to impress and improve with age
