Leopard’s Leap The Lookout Pinotage Rosé
Leopard’s Leap was conceptualised at the turn of the century by winemaker and businessman Hein Koegelenberg. Following its formidable success as a wine producer during the first decade, a decision was made in 2011 to broaden the horizons and, at the same time, create a home where visitors can get close to the values of the Leopard’s Leap brand and experience the Leopard’s Leap identity and principal passions – wine, food, conservation and literature. The elegant burst of citrus from the Chardonnay is beautifully complemented by the red fruit and raspberry aromas of the Pinot Noir.
Tasting Notes: On the nose aromas of crushed violets, pursued by caramelised black cherries, fennel and allspice – coriander seeds, cloves, cinnamon – with a block of dark chocolate last. On the palate, flavours of caramelised black cherries, hints of dark spice and dark chocolate, with velvety tannins that balance the wine for a rewarding experience. The emphasis is on the mouthfeel. There is a perfect balance between the acidity, of the Chardonnay and the lingering fruitiness of the Pinot Noir.
