Reserve Red 2018 is a vintage blend of the best reds Leeuwenkuil produces from the Swartland region: 65% Shiraz, 20% Cinsault, 10% Grenache and 5% Mourvèdre. Grapes were hand-picked at sugars ranging between 21 and 24° Balling. Fermented on skins with natural yeasts and using punch-downs and pump-overs to mix the juice and skins. Skin contact then took place for 20 days to allow for the maximum extraction of tannins. Malolactic fermentation and aging occurred in a 5,000-litre French oak foudres for 12 months. Bottled at 13.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: A distinctive perfume on the nose backed by the aroma of caramelised plums.

Palate: An abundance of pure red fruit: cherries, cranberries and plums.

Finish: A peppery and savoury finish.
