LE14 - Le Coureur des bois
Featuring LE14 Australian Shiraz Viognier

This fantastic Indian Spiced Gouda pairs incredibly well with the complexity of this Shiraz blend. You can find this cheese at our partner location - (The Home Vintner at) Bergeron Cheese Shoppe in Cochrane.

Le Coureur des bois is a firm ripened cheese seasoned with cumin seeds and aged for two months. It has a distinct aroma and a flavor reminiscent of Indian spices. It goes well with barbecues and adds a kick to cold cuts and hamburgers. As a third course, its pronounced flavor is a delicious way to end a meal.

 Moisture content: 43%, Fat content: 28%, Lactose free, Firm ripened cheese with cumin

How this food and wine pairing works together: The expectation from this  LE14 wine is to present as full bodied and tannic with a fantastic nose. The spiciness of the Shiraz grape is softened slightly from the voluptuous white Viognier grape. This cheese works very well with this wine, cutting the pepper and leaving a smooth finish.
