LE19 | April Red | Cape Blend with Grape Skins | South Africa
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 through 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.
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! The dark berry flavours from the Cabernet Sauvignon balance nicely with the forward spiciness from the Shiraz. Pinotage, which is a grape varietal that is unique to South Africa, provides firm tannins and smoky, earthy characteristics while the Grenache contributes subtle aromas of leather and licorice. Together these elements offer a complex, full-bodied wine that pairs exceptionally well with roasted red meats or aged hard cheeses.
