Kleine Zalze Shines at Veritas with Four Double Gold Medals and Best Achiever Award

 Stellenbosch wine estate Kleine Zalze reaffirmed its status as one of South Africa’s most awarded wineries on being announced as Best Achiever at this year’s Veritas Awards - the country’s leading wine competition – for producers entering more than 10 wines into the show. At this year’s Veritas Awards ceremony held at the historic Nederburg Wine Estate in Paarl, Kleine Zalze garnered four Double Gold medals and three Gold gongs on its route to the Best Achiever title.

Summer is the season for juicy, ripe plums – a good time to get creative in the kitchen in concert with Roodeberg’s Classic Red Blend. A Veritas gold medallist, the 2020 vintage of this multi-varietal Cabernet Sauvignon-driven blend is a symphony of textures and tastes that meld beautifully with luscious stewed or baked plums. Aromatic layers of fresh fruit with hints of spice and dark chocolate lead your senses to a mouthful of plums and cedar oak wrapped in silky tannins that linger long after the last sip.
