White Leipzig 2018
By Christian Eedes, 6 May 2020
Francois and Lida Smit, who own Leipzig, situated in the Nuy Valley outside Worcester, decided to start making wine under their own label again in 2013, ending decades as a grape supplier to Nuy Winery.
White Leipzig originally featured in the 1940s and was even served to the British Royal Family on their 1947 visit to South Africa. Now that the cellar is again producing, a white blend was an obvious inclusion in the portfolio.
From Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Viognier and matured for nine months in old oak, the nose shows honeysuckle, citrus, peach, vanilla and spice plus some leesy complexity while the palate is rich, full and flavourful. Price: R144 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 89/100.
