Tasting notes:
'This is a vintage blend of the best whites Leeuwenkuil produces from the Swartland region. 2018 has a delicate nose of white blossoms, apple and just a hint of pepper. The palate offers ripe peach and tangy pineapple flavour with an intriguing underlying chalky minerality which lingers on the finish.' – Winemaker

Alc: 13% | RS: 2.5 g/L | TA: 5.9 g/L | PH: 3.32

Tasting notes on the 2017 vintage:
The Leeuwenkuil Reserve White 2017 is very elegant and deeply complex. It offers ample citrus, fine aromatics and a minerality that is not often found in the Swartland. In summary, this is one of the bargains of the year!

‘More than lives up to tank sample tasted previously, 2017 a consummate blend, headed by chenin with 20% seven others - notably grenache blanc, marsanne, verdelho. All create complexity, individuality & freshness without assistance of oak. Modern, delicious.’ – Platter’s Guide 2020, 5* (95/100)

'Stunning value at only R140 a bottle, this new Reserve White is Chenin-based with 30% Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, Colombard and Chardonnay. It’s the sort of style that the Cape does better than anyone, with citrus and honeysuckle aromas, stony minerality, nuanced wood and mid-palate texture. 2018-23.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 95/100

'Predominantly Chenin Blanc but also including seven other varieties. White, green and yellow fruit plus dried herbs and some yeasty complexity on the nose while the palate has a good texture, moderate acidity and a savoury finish. Seamlessly assembled.' – Christian Eedes, WineMag.co.za, 92/100
