The Leopard's Leap Family Collection Cabernet Sauvignon is the classic interpretation of South African Cabernet Sauvignon. The bouquet unfolds wonderful notes of black currants and blueberries. On the palate, cherry notes are very prominent and supported by soft tannins. Elegant and well structured, the red wine impresses with its long finish. After the harvest, the Leopard's Leap Family Collection Cabernet Sauvignon first spent 14 to 16 months in barriques before continuing to mature in the bottle for a further eleven months. Therefore, the red wine has an excellent maturation potential. But even today it is a wonderful red wine for all those who love it strong in character. The wine tastes particularly delicious in combination with hearty poultry like duck. Also the interaction with well marbled beef or game meat offers highest drinking pleasure.
