Not only does the Leopard’s Leap Family Collection offer a brand new look and sleek label design with the release of the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, it also celebrates the Leopard’s Leap family traditions as well as CEO Hein Koegelenberg’s passion for Cabernet Sauvignon.
“My passion for the Cape Winelands and its diversity found its expression in this classic Cabernet Sauvignon. In our constant pursuit of vineyards that give our family of wines their distinction and character, this wine met all the hallmarks I believe should be reflected in a Cape Cabernet Sauvignon. It is my pleasure to share this wine from our family collection with you.”
The Leopard’s Leap Cabernet Sauvignon offers a classic interpretation of New-world fruit and is made from grapes in the Stellenbosch area, renowned for its quality Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine-making style, however, stays true to the traditional and allows an 18-month maturation in French oak barrels (60% new and 40% second-fill). The wine underwent a further 12-month bottle-maturation before being released.
Elegant in style, this complex Cabernet Sauvignon with its well-considered oak not only offers exceptional maturation potential, but is already accessible with defined dark berry fruit, undertones of liquorice and nuances of cedar-wood. The 2014 Leopard’s Leap Family Collection also promises to be exceptional next to its time-honoured partners on the dinner table – leg of lamb, rare beef and boeuf bourguignon.
