Leeu Passant Stellenbosch Chardonnay 2016
- Great Domaines
- Tim Atkin
all ratings out of 100 points.
"Leeu Passant reduced its range from two Chardonnays to one in 2016, and justifiably so. This breezy site on the False Bay side of the Helderberg is perfect for Chardonnay and has produced a nuanced, refreshing, beautifully balanced wine with racy acidity, fine oak and citrus peel acidity. A classy wine." - Tim Atkin, South African Special Report 2018

Vineyards & vinification:
Grapes are chilled in the cold room then pressed whole-bunch and the juice is allowed to settle overnight. Minimal SO2 is added and, as with all of the wines, no further additions are made.
