Blanc de Noir

LE16

Ready in 6 weeks

This single varietal wine is from the San Joaquin Valley region of California.

What is so special about the LE series wine kits? The grapes, blends and regions are selected after much research, and the resulting wines are crafted to produce stunning wines within a limited production run and a one time release date.

Blanc de Noirs is a French term that translates to a white wine made from dark grapes.  Pinot Noir, which many wine experts argue is the greatest red wine grape in the world, is used for this particular wine. By quickly removing the skins from the juice after the grapes have been pressed, the pigment from the skins is not transferred to the juice and you have all the beautiful complexities of Pinot Noir while keeping the colour light and the tannins at bay.

This wine, with its crab apple and strawberry driven nose and white peach and grapefruit palate pairs well with delicate dishes. 

Splurge on poached lobster or enjoy with eggs benedict for your next Sunday brunch.

Cabernet Franc

LE16

Ready in 6 weeks

This stand alone varietal is from the Yakima Valley region of Washington.

What is so special about the LE series wine kits? The grapes, blends and regions are selected after much research, and the resulting wines are crafted to produce stunning wines within a limited production run and a one time release date. 

While Cabernet Franc is most often seen as a staple in Bordeaux style blends, there is good reason to celebrate this grape on its own! Unapologetically fruit forward, this varietal treads the line between fruit and spice notes. Ripe raspberry and red currant dance into black pepper and fresh mint leaf. There is a solid backbone of tannin to provide mouth-feel and structure, yet offers a medium body to open up a large range of pairing options.

Play up the herbaceous elements and enjoy with rosemary-crusted lamb, or cozy up in the winter with a paprika-rich bowl of Goulash stew.

Grenache Cabernet with Grape Skins

LE16

Ready in 8 weeks

 What is so special about the LE series wine kits? The grapes, blends and regions are selected after much research, and the resulting wines are crafted to produce stunning wines within a limited production run and a one time release date.

This stunning blend with skins is from the Riverland region of Australia - where big reds can develop to their full potential. Cabernet Sauvignon, the undisputed "king" of grapes, is a big, bold character that has strong tannins while young, yet unwinds with age to a smooth, velvety texture that is worth the wait. Flavours like black currant (cassis) jam, cigar box and black olive will arise and marry well with the Grenache.

Grenache is the yin to Cabernet Sauvignon's yang. It's both soft and jammy to balance out the powerful structure of the Cabernet, yet rich and spicy enough to stand up. Flavours like red licorice, black cherry and raspberry combine with a warm cinnamon spice that rounds out the blend perfectly.

Enjoy this wine with bold protein-rich dishes like grilled steak or alternatively with wild mushroom risotto. Even without a meal, have a few big slices of aged cheddar to compliment the flavour and tannin of this age-worthy red.

Milagro

LE16

Ready in 6 weeks

 This 5 varietal blend is from the Valencia region of Spain.

What is so special about the LE series wine kits? The grapes, blends and regions are selected after much research, and the resulting wines are crafted to produce stunning wines within a limited production run and a one time release date.

Three of Spain's great red varieties, Tempranillo, Garnacha and Bobal bring their lush and hedonistic qualities to the accompanying full-bodied and well-structured Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Together this blend unfolds with black and red fruit characteristics, cherry cola, anise and white pepper with a powerful yet supple mouth-feel.

Pair this with braised beef, a big wedge of Manchego cheese or the region's famous specialty, Paella. Put your feet up, close your eyes and escape to Spain.

Vermentino

LE16

Ready in 6 weeks

This stand alone varietal is from the Tuscany region of Italy.

What is so special about the LE series wine kits? The grapes, blends and regions are selected after much research, and the resulting wines are crafted to produce stunning wines within a limited production run and a one time release date.

Ripened to a more aromatic expression on the nose and palate from soaking in the warm Tuscany sun, this wine is expressively refreshing. Think of flavours like white peach, green apple, fresh lime and even a bit of dried tarragon on the finish. On the palate, it has a quenching acidity that makes your mouth water with delight and a delicate weight that allows this wine to be sip-worthy on its own.

Pairs with regional Italian cuisine like pasta tossed in olive oil with fresh shellfish or simply with grilled Mediterranean vegetables.
