The grapes for Project Z Chenin Blanc 2018 were sourced from a vineyard over four decades old in the Firgrove region of Stellenbosch. Growing on clay and decomposed granite and subjected to the maritime airflow off the Atlantic Ocean at False Bay, the vineyard was selected for its ability to grow grapes offering a superior expression of the site’s unique geography. 'Overnight skin contact, then ferment & lees-ageing 10 months in amphora produce drop-dead-gorgeous 2018, showing Stellenbosch signature abundance with measured power (13.8% alcohol). Voluptuous & statuesque, stylish & flavourful, orchard & tropical fruit superbly poised on an acid & mineral backbone.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (96/100) 'Grapes from a 1980 Firgrove vineyard that also supplies a component of the well-established Family Reserve bottling. Fermented and matured in amphorae. Pear, peach, apple plus some yeasty complexity on the nose. The palate shows impressive richness and bright acidity before a savoury finish. Very good but, to my palate, not as intricate as the Family Reserve of the same vintage. Total production: 426 bottles.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 92/100

With Project Z, the team of winemakers at Kleine Zalze has free reign to interact with nature, to search for the ultimate expression from a vineyard and to push the boundaries of creativity and innovation in order to keep growing and evolving.
 
The 'project' originated back in 2014 from discussion between owner, Kobus Basson and the winemaking team. From the debates, the 'project' grew and today the cornerstones of the Project Z wines are a selection of vineyards on extraordinary sites and an impressive collection of Italian amphorae that were steadily acquired since 2015. And of course, a dedicated, committed, and skillful team.
 
The first wine was bottled in 2017 and by 2020 a unique range of signature wines were ready for release. Dressing the bottles was the only missing component. The packaging follows through on the journey of discovery and allows the winemaking team to own the full process of the creation of the first wines to be released in this range.
