The Reserve Red is a vintage blend of the best reds Leeuwenkuil produces from the Swartland region. After handpicking the grapes, they were fermented on skins with natural yeasts and using punch-downs and pump-overs to mix the juice and skins. Skin contact then took place for 20 days to allow for the maximum extraction of tannins. Malolactic fermentation and aging occurred in a 5 000L French oak foudres for 12 months.
Leeuwenkuil Reserve Red
The wine has a distinctive perfume on the nose backed by the aroma of caramelized plums. The palate offers an abundance of pure red fruit: cherries, cranberries, and plums with a peppery and savory finish. It is a fresh wine with great depth of flavor and complexity, finishing long and begging for another sip!
