Leeu Passant Dry Red Wine 2017

The Leeu Passant Dry Red Wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Cinsault grapes sourced from vineyards in Wellington, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. Matured for 12 months in 500L French oak barrels (30% new), then blended into seasoned 2000L Foudre for a further 8 months this is a medium to full bodied red wine that has attractive aromas of mulberry leaves, cassis and cedar. These follow through on the palate which has a firm structure, grainy tannins, and hints of peppercorns and tobacco. The finish is dry, layered and long. Although surprisingly accessible now, this wine will greatly benefit from decanting if drunk within the first 3 to 5 years after bottling and will reward if cellared properly over the next few decades.
