Adding quality to life with Natura De-alcoholised



In line with the latest lifestyle trends, Leopard’s Leap Wines is excited to introduce a charming new addition to the Leopard’s Leap portfolio:

Leopard’s Leap Natura De-alcoholised Classic White and Classic Red

This exciting couple gives wine lovers a delightful alternative for adding quality to life during those occasions or in those moments where alcohol can or should not be consumed. Versatile, health-conscious and delicious, Natura is ideal for a responsible, everyday quality lifestyle. Being de-alcoholised, the Natura is made from a traditional alcoholic wine from which the alcohol has been extracted to leave no more than 0.5% abv.

The Natura Classic White is a blend of Chenin Blanc and Muscat. Crisp and refreshing with tropical fruit flavours on the nose, the palate is juicy and beautifully integrated. Delightful on its own as an aperitif, it is also a lovely partner to delicate soups and all kinds of salads and seafood.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cinsaut, the Natura Classic Red intrigues with ripe red berries and sweet spice on the nose while the palate follows through with a smooth mouthfeel and lingering aftertaste. Delightful on its own and an outstanding and versatile partner on the dinner table.

Sourced from cool climates, the grapes for Natura wines are harvested at optimum ripeness to ensure the finest varietal characteristics. Winemaking is gentle with the minimum intervention and only when the winemaker is content with the quality of the wine, the alcohol is removed via a spinning cone. Done under vacuum and at low temperatures, this process ensures the product retains its unique appeal. Continuing towards bottling and labelling, the de-alcoholised wine is treated as an ordinary wine and handled with the utmost care and attention.

Leopard’s Leap Natura De-alcoholised Classic Red and Classic white are versatile, health-conscious and delicious. Made for you – for an everyday quality lifestyle.
