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.
100% Chenin Blanc
Leopard's Leap Culinaria Chenin Blanc has a well-defined ripe fruit character, showing aromas of Golden Delicious apple and tropical fruit flavours. These aromas are supported by sweet-spice flavours and a lively tartness. Elegant oak nuances make this wine a unique food companion.
Harvested at optimum ripeness. After berry-sorting and de-stemming, grapes were crushed and pressed after a short period of skin contact. The juice was allowed to settle, then fermented at 18 degrees Celsius in 500-litre second-fill and third-fill French oak barrels. Barrels were topped up and the wine was allowed nine months' lees contact prior to blending and bottling. Before release, the wine was bottle-matured for four months.
