  • YOLO White, California

    RELEASE DATE: MARCH, 2020

    YOLO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA

    YOLO is commonly known as an acronym for ‘You Only Live Once’; however, the origin of the name Yolo County is believed to come from Native American descent. This county is situated at the northernmost region within the Central Valley in California. Because of the deep and fertile soils found here, Yolo County is largely known for its agriculture, mainly its tomato production. The marine affects from the nearby Sacramento River provide cooler temperatures and the fog that rolls in and out of the vineyards daily, combined with the coastal winds, makes for ideal grape growing conditions. The climate contributes to the concentration of aromatic compounds found in the wines produced in this region.

    YOLO White

    Fruit-forward and slightly off-dry, the palate on this wine is inviting and well-balanced. The Chardonnay contributes vibrant green apple and melon flavours. The floral aromatics come from the Muscat, and the Chenin Blanc completes the wine with citrus flavours and high acidity. Pair with mild curry dishes, baked ham, Brie and Camembert cheese.

    $193.00

    RELEASE DATE: DECEMBER, 2019

    VALENCIA, SPAIN

    Valencia, a sunny region located in the heart of Spain’s east coast, is where one can find the Tempranillo grape. The Mediterranean climate of mild winters and very warm summers, combined with the gently sloping vineyards and permeable subsoils, creates the perfect growing conditions for this savoury grape. Valencia is also home to the famous annual Las Fallas festival which welcomes the arrival of spring with fireworks, pyrotechnics and colourful, giant paper-maché figures. Every day during the festival at 2 om, the city is filled with the sound of firecrackers, ultimately ending in the extraordinary finale called the Terremoto!

    TERREMOTO TEMPRANILLO

    The Tempranillo grape’s thick skin gives the wine a deep ruby colour and moderate tannins. Medium-bodied and savoury, Terremoto Tempranillo has flavours of cherry, dried fig and cedar, with hints of leather and spices. Whether you’re celebrating a big occasion like your 30th anniversary, complete with fireworks, or just toasting the end of a workday, this wine is the perfect accompaniment. Pair with braised meats, chorizo sausage or roasted eggplant.

  • Pecorino Pinot Grigio, Italy

    LE19

    $193.00

    RELEASE DATE: JANUARY 2020

    PECORINO – ABRUZZO, ITALY
    PINOT GRIGIO – VENETO, ITALY

    The Pecorino grapes are sourced from Abruzzo, Italy which is a mountainous region located along the Adriatic Sea. It is also home to the highest point on mainland Italy, Corno Grande. Veneto is located in northeast Italy and is the source region for the Pinot Grigio. The Influence of the nearby Alps provides a cooler microclimate where fresh, crisp white wines flourish.

    PECORINO PINOT GRIGIO

    Pinot Grigio was originally established as Pinot Gris in Burgundy and although most famous in Alsace, France, made its way to Switzerland in the 1300s and eventually to Northern Italy where Pinot Grigio was born. Today it is Italy’s most popular grape. Pecorino has a bit of a different history; thought to be extinct in the mid 20th century, it was rediscovered in the 1980s by a local producer who then took cuttings and propagated them resulting in this grape’s resurgence.

    Blending Pinot Grigio, the most popular Italian white wine grape, with the lesser known Pecorino grape results in a delicate white wine with high acidity, lemon, lime, and honeysuckle flavours, and an elegant floral aroma. Pair with steamed mussels, seafood risotto, and vegetarian spring rolls

    WORCESTER, SOUTH AFRICA

    The Worcester region in South Africa is located approximately 100 kms from Cape Town, in the Breede River Valley. It is surrounded by majestic mountain ranges and the Breede River runs though the valley on its way to the Indian Ocean. The hot climate and the protection provided by the mountains combine to provide perfect conditions for high-quality, fruitful wines.

    CAPE BLEND

    This exciting combination of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage, and Grenache creates a wine that is truly outstanding and worthy of being a part of the 30th anniversary of LE!

Pinotage, which is a grape varietal that is unique to South Africa, provides strong tannins and smoky, earthy characteristics while the Grenache contributes aromas of leather and licorice. Together, these elements offer a complex, full bodied wine that pairs well with roasted meats seasoned with marinades or savoury herbs and aged hard cheeses.
