Leopard's Leap Natura

Introducing Leopard's Leap de-alcoholised white and red wine to the Meridian Portfolio.

With ever-increasing consumer demand for wine without alcohol, we are delighted to extend our offering to cater for this growing market.

The grapes for Leopard's Leap Natura are sourced from cool climates and harvested at the optimum ripeness. With minimal intervention in the winemaking process, the alcohol is only removed via a spinning cone once the winemaker is completely satisfied with the quality of the wine.  Natura Classic White and Classic Red are wines that alcohol-free, vegan-friendly, low in calories and delicious.
