Leopard Frog Wine, Chocolate, and Cigar Tasting – A South Africa Winemaker’s Evening. Due to the exceptional response to his March visit, David Bate, owner and winemaker of Leopard Frog Vineyards, one of South Africa’s most highly rated über boutique cellars, visited us again to present his portfolio of wines, chocolates and cigars at this exclusive Fine Wine Reserve event.
Leopard Frog is the only South African vineyard to hand-craft its own wines, chocolates and cigars. It only produces a few barrels of wine in any given year and every wine has earned exceptionally high scores and multiple medals in competition.
David presented six wines this time, including his Double Gold Medal super premium Midnight Maasai Shiraz 2002 (once-off 5 barrels only), three other premium red blends (8 barrels each) as well as his first white wine (5 barrels only).
Four kinds of hand-made chocolates and three ranges of hand-rolled cigars were offered as part of an enjoyable but decidedly decadent evening.
As a special offering, David also presented a once-off offering of a Cape Winemaker's Guild sparkling wine (only 30 cases of 6 bottles produced).
Wines are not available at LCBO but direct from his agent (Colio Estate Wines). Cigars and chocolates were only available on-site at event.
Thanks to agents Colio Estate Wines for bringing Leopard Frog to the Reserve.
