2020 Kleine Zalze Project Z Riesling Verdelho
The Riesling was harvested early morning and fermented in stainless-steel tanks before maturation in an amphora as well as a component in older French barrels. The Verdelho was transported from vineyards close to the Atlantic and has a naturally high acidity. After pressing it is transported from the West Coast on the back of a 'bakkie' to be fermented and matured in an amphora in Stellenbosch.
Chiselled and taut, this wine needs time to open up if drinking young but it will age exceptionally well. The acidity will mellow over time to reveal a generous palate laden with typical Riesling aromas of honeysuckle, pear sand lime zest.
Very limited only 962 bottles produced.
