The Leopard's Leap Culinaria Collection Grand Vin is a classic red wine with a complex play of aromas. The blend, composed of Cabernet Sauvignon (52%), Merlot (28%), Malbec (12%), Petit Verdot (5%) and Cabernet Franc (3%), impresses the connoisseur with wonderfully integrated notes of tobacco and a hint of cedar. The taste experience is rounded off by red fruits and cassis, with mulberry added to the finish. The ripe tannins give the red wine, which has matured for around 21 months in French oak, its good and elegant structure. The winery's Culinaria Collection brings together wines that are excellent accompaniments to food. The Leopard's Leap Culinaria Collection Grand Vin is no exception and is an ideal complement to red meat dishes. But the blend is always a pleasure even when served pure.
