In 2001 Wijnhoeve De Kleine Schorre saw the light of Zeeland. A strict selection of grapes has been made in collaboration with the renowned Luxembourg wine company Cep d'Or. The choice of grape varieties is based on a number of criteria. One of these is that the wines must connect seamlessly with the good that Zeeland has been offering for many years, namely the Zeeuwse Zilte Zalheden. These salty delicacies consist of: mussels, Oosterschelde lobster, oysters, flatfish, sea lavender and samphire. The choice of grape varieties has therefore fallen on Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Rivaner and Auxerrois. Currently, 42,000 vines are already planned. The vineyard has grown to 10 hectares, making it one of the largest vineyards in the Netherlands.

In our opinion, the Schouwen-D®uiveland Barrique is the topper of the Kleine Schorre. It is a blend of Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris which has been allowed to mature in oak barrels. In the glass the Kleine Schorre has a bright straw yellow colour. In the nose the wine is aromatic with citrus, vanilla, acacia, peach, caramel, nuts but after a few waltzes in the glass we detect apricot and elderflower. In the mouth the Barrique is powerful and full. The oak aging can certainly be tasted with the vanilla notes, but here too the Kleine Schorre Barrique remains elegant and fresh.

This wine goes very well with fish in sauce or butter, such as fried scallops with white asparagus, Oosterschelde lobster with melted butter, soft cheeses.
