Leeu Passant Franschhoek Hillside Cabernet Franc 2021

100% Cabernet Franc
Wine of Origin Franschhoek

  • This is the first release of this Cabernet Franc.
  • We planted this stok-by-paaltjie single vineyard on the east-facing slopes of Franschhoek when we started Leeu Passant.
  • These steep, terraced slopes have a permanent cover crop of multiple fynbos species spanning the ground under the vines.
  • Only a single 500L barrel was made.

“Belle nuit, ô nuit d’amour
Souris à nos ivresses
Nuit plus douce que le jour
Ô, belle nuit d’amour!
Le temps fuit et sans retour
Emporte nos tendresses
Loin de cet heureux séjour
Le temps fuit sans retour”

“Bacarolle” by Jacques Offenbach

This is the last song I listened to before becoming a Mullineux and beginning my permanent journey in South Africa, and now, this is my first 100% Cabernet Franc that I am sharing with you, a wine that is an accumulation of love.

To enjoy the gorgeous fragrance of this wine, decant if the time it requires in bottle is not an option.

Winemaker: Andrea Mullineux
