Estate Notes

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. Run by the Dreyer family, it’s the first South African cellar to launch a Marsanne varietal wine.

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.

Leeuwenkuil's Marsanne is a great food wine, particularly suited to fish, seafood and poultry.


Lovely pale gold hue. White ginger flower, ripe tropical fruit and hints of vanilla and grilled hazlenuts. Good textured mouthfeel with fruit concentration and viscosity, savoury notes, balanced by acidity and a nice minerally finish.
