Leopards Leap Chescato 2021

Leopards Leap Chescato 2021

Imagine a playful perfume that combines caramelised pear and orange peel with fun floral notes such as apple and citrus blossoms.
All the juiciness of ripe summer fruit, beautifully balanced by a crisp acidity

This wine is a delicious glassful to enjoy on its own in a sunny spot, but it can make the most of any weather. Enjoy Chescato as a partner to subtle spices in wintery Malay-type curries or pour generous glasses with summer’s sushi and salads, sandwiches and sweets. Perfect for picnics, parties and playing – whether it is under blue skies or in front of toasty fires

in the cellar : The sunshine of Chenin Blanc meets the vibrancy of Moscato in a bright and beautiful wine with a lovely perfume and flirty touch of sweetness. Grapes are from the small and sunny wine growing area of Voor Paardeberg, just outside Paarl. The Chenin Blanc was picked at 21 and the Muscat at 20 degrees Balling to ensure lower alcohol. The two varieties are vinified separately, then blended and bottled prior to release. Cultivars are picked earlier to get lower alcohol. A small percentage of the wine’s alcohol is also removed and then blended back to get a good balance between fresh acidity and fruitiness.
