With its fruit-driven character, the Leopard's Leap Classic Collection Merlot delights every red wine fan from the very first moment. Aromas of cherries and raspberries characterise the wine's bouquet and are surrounded by a hint of oak. Juicy fruit notes are balanced on the palate by elegant tannins and a soft texture and linger for some time. Part of the Leopard's Leap Classic Collection Merlot was matured for one year in French oak. Enjoy the red wine best with pasta with tomato sauce, dark meat or dishes with gratinated cheese. A dessert with dark chocolate is also highly recommended with Leopard's Leap Classic Collection Merlot.
