Leeu Passant Dry Red 2016

SKU: 31592
Leeu Passant Dry Red 2016
The investment worthy Leeu Passant Dry Red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Cinsault, all from old vines, with the dryland farmed Cinsault bushvine parcel, the oldest registered vineyard in South Africa, at 118 years old. Whereas the 2015 Leeu Passant maiden vintage wines were all about tightly coiled freshness and structure, the 2016 Dry Red has a more generous body supported by firm tannins, reflecting the drier vintage conditions. This Dry Red shows incredible balance with its fine, but very present, tannin, incredible acidity and freshness of fruit predicting incredible ageing potential. Even in the glass it evolves slowly over hours to reveal very subtle notes of tea leaf over the primary fruit core.

With the potential to age for a decade or more, please decant this wine if drinking it young.
