Harvest Season in full swing

Things have really been busy at Leipzig Winery early in the year, especially with harvest season being in full swing.

We have collected all the Sauvignon Blanc that will comprise our 2016 wine and the two components, from Durbanville and Elim, have been fermenting in separate stainless steel tanks. The Durbanville component has finished its fermentation process and is already a beautiful wine abounding with tropical flavours and a natural high acidity. A very special yeast was introduced to the Elim component, and as this newsletter goes out, this tank is still slowly fermenting. The very slow fermentation process this tank has been following is sure to bring the best out of the very high quality grapes sourced from Elim.

In addition to the Sauvignon Blanc, we have also collected some exquisite and very special Chenin Blanc grapes from the Phisantekraal area in Durbanville. These are the same grapes used to make our 2015 Lida Chenin Blanc, which we have just now released. Only 700 bottles of the 2015 Lida Chenin Blanc was produced and we hope to have more of this lovely wine in 2016. The Chenin is currently about halfway through its fermentation process. The first red grapes to enter our cellar in 2016, was Pinotage sourced from Stellenbosch. These grapes were crushed and destemmed and has spent a few days cold-soaking whilst also undergoing its primary fermentation. These grapes were then pressed and the wine has been moved to small French Oak barrels for its further development.


Now we are waiting on mother nature to tell us when the rest of our planned intake of grapes will be ready for harvest!


Our exclusive Grand Master 2014, which is a Bordeaux blend and our 2015 Lida Chenin Blanc is now available for purchase together with all our other old favourites. Please note that on the white wine side, our 2014 Viognier is getting low on stock and on the red wine side, we have very limited amount of the 2014 Master Blend and 2013 Shiraz left. Be sure to pick up a few of these wines before they are sold out.
