2015 LEIPZIG GRAND MASTER BORDEAUX BLEND RED VEGAN WINE
The name, Leipzig, is from the German “city of music”, where the forefathers of this estate stem from. Originally, Mrs Alida Smit, who was born on the neighbouring farm, bought the section of land that is now known as Leipzig. Today, the farm is run by Alida Bester, who is the youngest daughter of Alida and Francois Smit. Alida Bester, along with her husband, Vian, maintain a truly lovely wine venue. We had the pleasure of meeting Vian, who explained the history of the farm and their wines while we tasted them.
The “Grand Master” of Leipzig’s red wine blends is a combination of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and 9% Malbec.
