    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.

    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!  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 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 red meats seasoned with marinades or savoury herbs and aged hard cheeses.
