Leeu Passant is the Franschhoek Winery of Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines. Separate from the Milluneux range, the Leeu Passant wines are multi-regional bottlings inspired by the classic age-worthy wines of the Cape from the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s. These were authentic wines unique to the culture, terroir, history and tastes of the Cape, and today the family strive to reflect these unique factors in their modern interpretations of these wines.

This incredible wine is a heritage blend from some of South Africa’s oldest registered vineyards. The Cabernet Sauvignon is from a 40-year-old dry farmed bush vine vineyard planted on a granitic Polkadraai site, whereas the Cabernet Franc grows on the mid-slopes of the iron and sandstone soils of the Helderberg Mountain, both in Stellenbosch; the Cinsault is from South Africa’s two oldest registered red wine vineyards, including dry-farmed bush vines, planted in deep sandy alluvial soils in Wellington in 1900, South Africa’s oldest registered vineyard, and a parcel of dry-farmed bush vine planted on the richer, lower eastern colluvial slopes of the Franschhoek mountains, planted in 1932.

Tasting Note:
The well-integrated proportions of the 2019 blend are reflected in this wine with an inviting wave of cassis, dried bramble and Bergamot orange on the nose and a firm structure, silky tannins and beautifully seamless finish. This wine is something very special and will requite if cellared optimally over the next few decades.

This is a Dry, Medium+ bodied wine with High acidity and Medium+ tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
