The Leopard´s Leap Culinaria Collection Grand Vin is a complex red wine blend made from Cabernet Sauvignon (46%), Merlot (36%), Malbec (12%) and Petit Verdot (6%). The multi-layered aroma combines red fruits with black currants and blueberries. The perfectly integrated oak note and a hint of dark chocolate give the red wine its final touch, while the compact tannins give the blend its elegant structure. Serve this red wine with a strong character, which has matured for 21 months in barriques, best with dishes with dark meat, spicy or cheese. But the Leopard's Leap Culinaria Collection Grand Vin is also a real treat on its own.
