2017 Kleine Zalze Project Z Grenache
This is plusher than their 2016 and arguably with better balance. The wine was fermented in clay pots firstly the fermentation was done with carbonic maceration and then with light pump overs. It was then aged for 12 months in 500 litre amphorae. The resulting wine is decadent with a savoury core running through. The grapes were grown on 40 yr old bush vines in Darling, so also affected by a maritime influence from the Atlantic Ocean.
The 2017 was scored 5 stars by the Platter Guide!! Very limited only 563 bottles made.
