The Culinaria Collection, available exclusively at Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards, is a celebration of the harmony in which food and wine complement one another – to create optimal enjoyment through mutual enhancement. The collection comprises a Chenin Blanc, Pinot Noir Chardonnay blend, a Pinot Noir, Grand Vin Bordeaux-style blend, Méthode Cap Classique champagne-style sparkling wine. The range also includes a Muscat de Frontignan natural sweet wine.
Grand Vin is a Bordeaux-style blend with complex layers. Aromas of dark ripe plum and fruitcake blend beautifully with whiffs of cocoa. The firm, elegant structure of this wine provides an interesting base for food-and-wine pairing.
The wine boasts an elegant pale salmon colour. A delicate flavour of rose water and Turkish delight entices on the nose, complemented by hints of lemon zest and litchi. The palate impresses with perceived lightness, without being syrupy or cloying. Impeccable balance makes this wine versatile and approachable, with a long-lingering after-taste, characterised by nuances of geranium.
Leopard's Leap Culinaria Pinot Noir is a delicate wine with light floral and fruit nuances, subtle aromas of cranberry with earthy hints of tobacco.
Leopard's Leap Culinaria Pinot Noir Chardonnay has a well-defined structure, long on acidity and chock-full of fruity flavours such as white pear, cranberry and pomegranate culminating in a luscious crème brûlée finish. Combining the characteristics of both a white and a red wine, this blend is exceptionally flexible in food-and-wine matching.
Culinaria Chenin Blanc is a Wine of Origin Western Cape. Grapes used for the production of this Loire-style wine originate from the Voor-Paardeberg area, well-known for growing excellent quality Chenin Blanc.
A shimmering wine with a subtle pink undertone. There is a zesty vibrancy capturing gentle red fruit aromas that finish in mildly lingering gooseberry, kiwi fruit and brioche. The palate reveals a red berry sparkle with dried cranberry, elegantly supported by a fine balance between fruit and acidity.
