THE KLEINE ZALZE Vineyard Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 has been awarded the only Gold medal for a South African wine at the Concours International des Cabernets (CIDC) held recently in France. Only 30 Gold medals were awarded in this competition.

Cabernet is the most widely grown grape variety in the world. The objective of the International Competition of Cabernets is to compare these wines and award the best cabernets in the world. The Union de la Sommellerie Française (UDSF) is partnering the competition.

This organisation brings together nearly 1200 sommeliers and selects the best Sommelier of France, amongst other awards. Their expertise and their insightful knowledge of consumer tastes is a further guarantee of the quality of the wine selection.

The results of the selection are communicated to USDF members after the event. Juries made up of 3 sommeliers blind taste several wines in a category. Prior to tasting, bottles are covered, numbered and sorted in accordance with their percentage of cabernet, origin and terroir. Kleine Zalze is situated in Strand Road (R44), Stellenbosch, South Africa.
