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. 50 years passed and the owner decided that the wine tradition of Leipzig deserved its time in the sun again. Mrs Smit, whose family has been farming this part of the Nuy Valley for generations, has always known that Leipzig was her true home. She was born on the neighbouring farm and jumped at the opportunity to purchase part of Leipzig when it came on the market.
Made from grapes that were sourced from 38-year old bush vines to produce concentrated flavours. Aged for 6 months in small oak barrels before undergoing further bottle aging.
