Wine Tasting at Leipzig - Part 3

There's an interesting story behind the White Leipzig wine. Legend has it that when Princess Elizabeth (now Queen Elizabeth) was visiting South Africa, she was introduced to White Leipzig and liked it so much that she ordered cases of it for her 21st birthday in Cape Town. At Leipzig, they have tried to recreate the historical wine as close to the original as possible with their new release and vintage label of White Leipzig 2018.

Shandré telling us the White Leipzig story.

I didn't plan on doing a Part 3, but we ended up bringing my dad, stepmom, and stepbrother to Leipzig last week in the short time that they came to visit. This was one of two places that we took them wine tasting. We decided that it was worth a visit even though our time was limited. They'll have to come back to South Africa for a longer stay to visit other great wineries in the Western Cape. If you missed Part 1 and 2, the links are below.
