TASTING NOTE

This wine features youthful, intense strawberry, red cherry and blackberry, with a peppery kick. Balanced, structured and fruit-forward, this wine saw no oak, thus preserving even the most delicate of the fruit nuances.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

Willie and Emma Dreyer are the proud owners of Leeuwenkuil Family Vineyards. Their story set off when they met at the age of 16 and together they have built Leeuwenkuil into the successful winery it is today.

Leeuwenkuil, or 'Lion's Lair', was given its alluring name as a tribute to the ferocious Cape Lion that roamed the farmlands hunting unsuspecting cattle. Watering holes in the area were frequented by these lions, who posed a great threat to local cattle farmers. Luckily for the Dreyer family, Leeuwenkuil's land was perfectly suited for growing vineyards.
