INTRODUCING THE NEW VINTAGE AND PACKAGING FOR LEOPARD’S LEAP CLASSIC COLLECTION SHIRAZ

INTRODUCING THE NEW VINTAGE AND PACKAGING FOR LEOPARD’S LEAP CLASSIC COLLECTION SHIRAZ

We have just introduced the 2014 vintage of our popular Classic Collection Shiraz.

Presented in a new, curvaceous bottle, the packaging of the 2014 vintage now suits its typical Rhône-style characteristics: voluptuous but elegant, complex but accessible.

On the nose well-defined flavours of plum and blackberry combine with subtle undertones of cracked black pepper, clove and coriander, while the palate follows through with a refined tannin structure and lingering aftertaste.

A popular choice with the delicious roast meats from the Rotisserie at Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards, this new vintage of the Leopard’s Leap Shiraz promises to be an exceptional choice with a variety of red meat – game, herb-infused lamb and grilled steak. It also partners well with the smoky character of grilled vegetables.

Made from 100% Shiraz grapes originating from the very on-trend Swartland and Perdeberg areas. 50% of the wine was matured in 225-litre French oak barrels for a period of 12 months. The balance of the wine was oak staved for 6 months with added micro-oxygenation.
