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. To preserve the memory and continue the story, it was decided that White Leipzig would once again see the light after many years.

Three iconic cultivars that are beautifully balanced in taste and colour. Blend is a combination of Shiraz, Mouvedre and Viognier. A definitive spice coupled with smells of perfumed forest floor give way to a mineral saltiness on the palate. Awards: Paltter’s 4 StarsGrapes: Shiraz, Mouvedre and Viognier Alcohol: 14
