For the family – Cabernet and Cuisine



The Leopard’s Leap Family Collection Cabernet Sauvignon is a celebration of 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 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 12-months maturation in French oak barrels (60% new and 40% second-fill). The wine was bottle-matured for a further 11 month before being released.

Elegant in style, this complex Cabernet Sauvignon with its well-considered oak not only offers exceptional maturation potential, but is ready for immediate enjoyment, offering defined dark berry fruit, undertones of liquorice and nuances of cedar-wood. The 2015 Leopard’s Leap Family Collection also promises to be exceptional next to its time-honoured partners on the dinner table – leg of lamb, boeuf bourguignon and beef kebabs.

Chef Pieter shares three recipes that will not only complement the Cabernet Sauvignon, but are perfect for family get-togethers: roast saddle of lamb for Easter, a Franschhoek interpretation of a French classic – boeuf bourguignon and something delicious for the braai, curried beef kebabs.

The 2015 Leopard’s Leap Family Collection Cabernet Sauvignon is available online or from the Leopard’s Leap Tasting Room at R82.
