The exciting and on-trend Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards has now launched a brand new range of wines called the Culinaria Collection. The Collection is inspired by terroir-specific French styles and celebrates the age-old relationship between food and wine.

“The Culinaria Collection is a celebration of the passions of the Leopard’s Leap brand and the appreciation we have for fine food and fine wine,” says Hein Koegelenberg, CEO of Leopard’s Leap.

Exclusively available from the estate in Franschhoek, the collection comprises a Chenin Blanc Grenache Blanc blend (Loire-inspired), Pinot Noir Chardonnay blend (Burgundy-inspired), a Shiraz Grenache blend (Rhône-inspired), Grand Vin Bordeaux-style blend and Méthode Cap Classique Champagne-style sparkling wine.  The range also includes a Muscat de Frontignan Natural Sweet dessert wine.

As the Collection is inspired by the regionality of French wine, terroir plays an important role in determining the identity and character of each one of these wines.

The quality of the Culinaria wines has already been acknowledged with the following medals at the International Wine Challenge:

•    2012 Leopard's Leap Culinaria Chenin Blanc Grenache Blanc - GOLD
•    Leopard's Leap Culinaria Méthode Cap Classique - SILVER
•    2010 Leopard's Leap Culinaria Grand Vin – BRONZE

The 2010 Leopard’s Leap Culinaria Grand Vin also received a Silver award at Mundus Vini.

The Culinaria Collection is available from Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards:

2012 Chenin Blanc Grenache Blanc R65
2012 Pinot Noir Chardonnay R69
2010 Shiraz Grenache R89
2010 Grand Vin R89
