Description

Leeuwenkuil, or “Lion’s Lair”, was given its name as a tribute to the ferocious Cape Lion that roamed the farmlands hunting unsuspecting cattle. Watering holes in the area were frequented by these lions, who posed a great threat to local cattle and farmers. Leeuwenkuil land was perfectly suited for growing vineyards and Willie and Emma Dreyer are the proud owners of the Leeuwenkuil Family Vineyards. Over the past 30 years, Willie, his family and his hard-working team together have built Leeuwenkuil into what it is today – 1250 hectares of thriving vineyards.

Leeuwenkuil Heritage Chenin was made using Grapes were are picked by hand. on different sugar levels, mainly determined by the type of soil.   Whole bunch pressing, with fermentation in a combination of stainless steel and oak barrels.  The barrelled wine was matured on the primary lees for 9 months before the final blend was made and bottled.

 This is a true food lover’s wine. Creamy mushroom risotto, grilled line fish or a well-matured Angus rib-eye steak.
