Leopards Leap Special Edition Pinotage 2020

Proud example of South Africa’s Signature variety. This Pinotage displays a beautiful rich purple colour with a bright crimson red colour hue. The nose is packed with fruit-forward aromas of raspberry and cherry. Soft nuances of nutmeg and black pepper intertwine with juicy red fruit flavours, underlined by subtle hints of vanilla and oak spices, soft tannins and an elegant finish.
