At Leeuwenkuil they have a practical approach to winemaking. They are privileged enough to have vineyards that produce large volumes of excellent quality grapes and strive to interfere as little as possible with their natural growth. Their continuous aim to cultivate the optimal taste profile from their vineyards allows them to present the world with only the best quality wines.

The Leeuwenkuil Reserve Red 2017 is a pure-fruited Swartland beauty with a modest alcohol level and sumptuous Old World savouriness. It has the sophistication of a wine 3 times the price along with great drinkability from the fine 2017 vintage. In summary, this one of the bargains of the year!

Tasting notes:
'This is a new wine from Leeuwenkuil, priced below its top reds and made in larger volumes. A Syrah-based assemblage with Cinsault, Grenache and Mourvèdre, the Reserve Red achieves concentration without over ripeness. Sappy and fresh, with notes of black tea and clove spice and top notes of lavender and thyme. 2019-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 93/100
