Leopard's Leap
Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards in Franschhoek, following on from the launch of their exquisite Culinaria Collection, the wine collection inspired by terroir-specific French styles and celebrating the age-old relationship between food and wine; has launched their latest non-vintage Méthode Cap Classique Champagne-style sparkling wine.
This wine is a taste-bud tingling blend of Chardonnay (59%), Pinot Noir (29%), and Pinot Meunier (12%), with the majority of the grapes used originating from the Franschhoek Valley.

Serve with roasted Butternut and Broad bean salad with a soy and ginger dressing. Cheers. READ MORE.
