It’s about time I introduced you to a wonderful wine I first tasted in Salt. The first time I ate there was with my family, and my sister, who had lived for many years in South Africa, jumped out of her chair when she saw Leopards Leap on the wine list. She enthused about it, jumped up and down, waved her arms and demanded we get both the red and white. To keep her quiet we complied with her wishes and asked the waiter for two bottles. One of each. And they were delicious. We bought more.
The two bottles, Leopards Leap Chenin Blanc Western Cape and Cabernet Sauvignon Western Cape, are not common wines in this country and can only be bought at select wine suppliers. And it’s this attention to detail that marks our Frank’s and Stefan’s approach to Salt. Their desire to bring you the best in everything.
The Leopard’s Leap family vineyards are situated in South Africa’s prime Western Cape winelands area, near the town of Franschhoek, the gourmet capital of South Africa. But it’s not only their passion for wine making has made them one of the most popular tipples in South Africa they’re also committed to the conservation of the magnificent, and endangered, Cape Mountain Leopard through sponsorship of the Cape Leopard Trust.
Trust me. Next time you’re looking to try a new wine or are in Salt for something to eat, whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner, ask your waiter for a bottle of this magnificent South African wine.
