  2. Big Win For Franschhoek Vignerons At Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show

    Leave a Comment

    Of the 956 wines judged from 206 producers, 32 gold medals were awarded and 24 trophies were awarded to deserving producers at the 2019 Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show. The announcement took place at a special awards event in Cape Town oearlier in June.

    Two of the big winners were Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards which scooped the Riedel Trophy for Best Bordeaux-Style Red Blend for its Culinaria Collection Grand Vin 2017, while Wildeberg was awarded Trophy for Best Semillon for their Wildeberg White 2018.

    The Culinaria Grand Vin is part of the Culinaria Collection, which is available exclusively off the farm, and is a celebration of the harmony in which food and wine complement one another – to create optimal enjoyment through mutual enhancement. The Culinaria Collection Grand Vin is best described as a wine showcasing complex layers, with aromas of vibrant red fruit, black currant and blueberry, perfectly integrated with subtle oak spices and a hint of dark chocolate in the after-taste. The ripe tannins ensure a firm, elegant structure. Without a doubt a sincere wine that will complement well-prepared red meat dishes.

    The maiden vintage Wildeberg White exemplifies the magic of Franschhoek, which is produced from 100% Semillon grapes and aged in new and older oak. On the palate the wine offers a citrus tang with a terrific mouthfeel. Described as a vast wine with layers of expression.

    Congratulations to both of these winners for a sterling performance.

     

  3. Franschhoek Vigneron triumphs at 2018 Standard Bank Chenin Blanc Top Ten Challenge

    Leave a Comment

    Included in the list of 10 winners announced at the fifth annual Standard Bank Chenin Blanc Top Ten Challenge, Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards secured a position for a third year. This year, the Leopard’s Leap Culinaria Chenin Blanc 2016 made it onto the list together with other prominent SA wine producers. In recent years Chenin Blanc has grown in popularity amongst consumers, and today South Africa has more Chenin Blanc under vine than any other country in the world.

    This year saw the challenge receiving 113 entries for wooded Chenin Blancs, and 46 entries for unwooded. All entries were tasted blind by a five member panel, with 27 wines shortlisted for the final top ten selection. The panel was chaired by Cathy van Zyl MW, and she was joined by Tinashe Nyamudoka, James Pietersen, Richard Kershaw MW and Simon Field MW. Spencer Fondaumiere joined as the associate judge.

    The Leopard’s Leap Culinaria Chenin Blanc 2016 has a well-defined ripe fruit character, which brings with it aromas of Golden Delicious apple and tropical fruit flavours. These aromas are perfectly supported by sweet-spice flavours and a lively tartness. Elegant oak nuances make this wine the perfect food companion.

  4. Taste the valley’s exceptional wines at Franschhoek Summer Wines

    Leave a Comment

    This weekend on Saturday 31st March an exceptional new wine event will be hosted at Leopard’s Leap Vineyards in the picturesque Franschhoek Wine Valley. Franschhoek Summer Wines will present 31 Vignerons de Franschhoek members from the valley, who will each be showcasing one of their top summer wines for tasting between 12pm and 5pm. This means that visitors can look forward to tasting the best quality white wines, rosé’s and bubblies from the area all available in one central location.

    Asking Franschhoek Wine Valley CEO, Jenny Prinsloo, why this new event was designed, she replied: “We realised that there is a need for a wine event in Franschhoek that is small and intimate that can showcase the best Franschhoek’s wineries have on offer. It is aimed at attracting visitors with a special interest in wine, sommeliers, media and people in the wine trade by giving them an opportunity to taste these quality wines.”

    Keeping in line with the theme of gourmet and wine, Franschhoek Summer Wines has also teamed up with celebrity chef Liam Tomlin, who will be presenting cooking demonstrations throughout the afternoon. Visitors can attend a top class demo to learn how to master the art of making the perfect risotto, duck confit or pork belly.

    Tickets to this not-to-be-missed event are available online at www.webtickets.co.za and cost R180 per person. Cooking demonstrations can also be booked online at an additional cost of R110 per person per demonstration. Online booking is essential as tickets are limited to 350 only, and selling fast. And while you are at it, why not make it a weekend and spend the night in Franschhoek? There are some wonderful accommodation options available.
