MENU’s Wine of the Week. Leopard’s Leap Culinaria Chenin blanc 2015

Leopard’s Leap is in Franschhoek, but they source many of their grapes from other areas. This lovely Chenin was made with grapes from the Voor Paardeberg, home of so many excellent Chenin blanc producers. It has, as you can see, a lovely rich, golden colour

On the nose, there are aromas of butter, toffee and peach. On the palate, we found crisp and intense flavours of roasted pineapple, then ripe pear with a dash of lime and finishing with dark oak. Another wine which shows the benefit of being kept for a few years in a good cellar. Platter awarded the current 2017 4 stars. It is available from the Leopard’s Leap at R99
