Variety

100% Pinot Noir

Character

Leopard's Leap Culinaria Pinot Noir is a delicate wine with an interesting combination of red and darker fruit nuances, made in a more classic style. Subtle aromas of cranberry, hints of raspberry and cherry with delicate undertones of tobacco. Supple tannins and a unique mouthfeel make this elegantly weighted wine exceptionally versatile in food-and-wine pairing.

Vineyards

Elgin vineyards lie approximately twenty-seven kilometres inland from the sea, with prevailing south-easterly winds. Similar slopes close to the sea in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley promote slow ripening.

Origin

Culinaria Pinot Noir is a Wine of Origin Western Cape. The grapes originate from the Elgin area and Hemel-en-Aarde Valley.

Wine-making

Grapes were hand-picked at 23,5 degrees Balling. Traditional wine-making methods were used, allowing minimal intervention. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrels, whereafter 30% of the wine was matured in first-fill 500-litre barrels, while the remaining 70% was matured in third-and fourth-fill 225-litre French oak barrels for a period of 18 - 20 months.
