Leeu Passant is the Franschhoek Winery of Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines. The Leeu Passant wines are multi-regional bottlings inspired by the classic age-worthy wines of the Cape from the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s. These were authentic wines unique to the culture, terroir, history and tastes of the Cape, and we strive to reflect these unique factors in our wines.
Leeu Passant Wellington Basson Cinsault 2020
This highly fragrant wine has an alluring nose suggesting fresh cherries, cranberry, rose petals and a hint of thyme. The palate is vibrant and silky in
texture, with linear notes of pomegranate, pink peppercorns and cloves. As this wine ages the texture increasingly becomes plush and in laying it down
will reward with more layers of complexity. The very fine tannins give a beautiful structure to the wine, exemplifying the Basson sense of place. Best served at 16–18°C.
