LEIPZIG RED VEGAN WINE BLEND GRAND MASTER BORDEAUX 2015
From the 1890s to 1963 spectacular wines were created on the Estate, wines that even the British Royalty enjoyed during their visit to South Africa after World War 2. They sipped on a luxurious white blend called “The White Leipzig”.
Wine production on Leipzig came to a halt with the opening of a large cooperative cellar in the Nuy Valley. 50 years passed and the owner decided that the wine tradition of Leipzig deserved its time in the sun again. He joined forces with master winemaker Mark Carmichael Green.
The “Grand Master” of Leipzig red vegan wine blend is a combination of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and 9% Malbec.
