Leopard Frog Wine, Chocolate and Cigar Tasting – Brought to us by Colio Estate Wines, this was a classic South Africa Winemaker’s Evening featuring Leopard Frog Vineyards.
In attendance, Mr. David Bate owner and winemaker of Leopard Frog Vineyards, one of South Africa’s most highly rated über boutique cellars. David was visiting Toronto 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 four red wines, including his Double Gold Medal super premium Midnight Maasai Shiraz 2002 (once-off five barrels only, aged a whopping five years in Oak and two years in the bottle before release) and three other premium red blends (eight barrels each) that marry unique varietals into one-of-a-kind offerings.
Also sampled were four kinds of hand-made chocolates and three ranges of hand-rolled cigars.
All part of an enjoyable and decidedly decadent evening.
Big thanks go out to Enzo at Colio and David from Leopard Frog. We're already looking forward to your return some day soon.
