‘Grapes from three Helderberg blocks. Matured for 12 months in oak of which 30% was new before being transferred to 5 000-litre wooden vats for a further 12 months. Attractive top notes of fresh herbs and rose before red and black berries. The palate is medium bodied with great fruit purity, fresh acidity and firm but not astringent tannins. With almost faultless structure and poise, this is really charming and by far the best vintage to date.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 96/100

‘Dark ruby in color, the 2021 Leeu Passant Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon displays a dusty edge in the glass, with tones of dark red and black fruit and herbaceous notes of roasted red pepper, dusty cherry and dark plum blossoms. Medium-bodied, the wine uncoils on the palate, revealing a firm tannic edge with a fresh beam of acidity that drives the mid-palate. It will undoubtedly age like a champ but will need additional time in the bottle to come around. Until then, if you enjoy young, cool-climate Cabernet, this is for you. I would instead give it a few more years and enjoy it with food. Your patience will be rewarded. 2026-2038’ - Anthony Mueller, Wine Advocate, 93+/100

Producer information Since 2013, Chris and Andrea Mullineux have been working on a new project that focuses on vineyards outside of the Swartland appellation which have been specially selected by Rosa Kruger. Together with their partner Analijt Singh they launched their game changing Leeu Passant wines. Produced from old vines, including the oldest registered red wine vineyard in South Africa, these wines redefine the South African wine landscape. Their inspiration comes from past successes of the 50s, 60s and 70s, like Château Libertas and Rustenberg Dry Red. Their wines speak of South Africa's heritage and bring the unique wines of the past into the future.
