Leeu Passant Stellenbosch Chardonnay 2015
- Great Domaines
- Tim Atkin
all ratings out of 100 points.
"They are priced at the same level, but I prefer this Chardonnay of the two new Leeu Passant releases. Sourced from a vineyard on the False Bay side of the Helderberg, it’s a saline, ocean-influenced style with lovely elegance, lift and focus, subtle oak and a refreshing, palate-cleansing finish." - Tim Atkin, South African Special Report 2018
