Estate Notes

Leeuwenkuil's 2014 Cinsault yields from fruit grown on old bush vines whose crop has been  reduced to 1 bunch per shoot to enhance grape quality and concentration.

Leeuwenkuil (lit. lion’s lair) is a family-run, pioneering winery, situated in the Coastal Region of the Western Cape, the heart of the South African wine industry. The Dreyer family took over the estate (which was established in the 17th century) in 1851. Today it is run by Willie and Emma Dreyer who, for have the past 30 years has expanded the vineyards to 1200 hectares, but keep a strong association with their land.

Reviews

An elegant and velvety wine with great colour and concentration derived from old vines. Red berries and cherries, savoury black olives and black spices flow in a beautifully balanced mouthfeel.
