Leeu Passant Radicales Libres 2014

This is not a normal wine. It is a force of nature. This wine was inspired by the concentrated white wines of Rioja that are created by picking at normal ripeness levels followed by fermentation and several years of barrel maturation.

From the incredibly cool Barrydale valley in the Klein Karoo, after fermentation this Chardonnay was aged in barrel for a further FIVE YEARS! In that time, as water evaporates, everything else in the wine concentrates. It is an intentionally powerful experience

Tasting Notes: Salt and Almonds and Time and Power. This wine is bulletproof and will pair amazingly with hard cheese and salty nuts.

Winemaker: Andrea Mullineux
