On the palate, a great mouth feel reveals, the blend presents itself lively and fruity with nuances of cranberries, pomegranate and apples. The Leopard’s Leap Classic Collection Chardonnay Pinot Noir succeeds in perfectly combining the characteristics of the white and red grapes. It is very flexible and can therefore be served as an aperitif or with strong poultry such as duck. The combination with Mediterranean cuisine, sushi or soft cheese is also highly recommended.
