  • Winexpert LE21 Marselan

    LE21 Marselan (February 2022 release)

    LE21

    A cross between Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache, this relatively young French varietal displays the best characteristics of both parents. Marselan is deeply coloured with a powerful nose of jammy red and black fruits and spice. The palate delivers rich ripe fruit flavours of blackberry, plum and black currant with spicy notes, balanced acidity, and well-rounded tannins. Supple, smooth, and seductive.

    ADDITIONAL FOOD PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: Charcuterie, grilled meat (bbq, burgers, pork chops), fresh lasagna with pesto, lamb navarin, dark chocolate desserts

    LANGUEDOC, FRANCE
    This is the true home of Marselan; it was developed here in 1961 and takes its name from Marseillan, a coastal village near where it was first bred and planted. Soils vary across the large region with limestone and clay the most common. The Mediterranean climate, with hot sunny days tempered by cool sea breezes at night, makes the Languedoc a perfect place for growing grapes.

  • LE21 Grenache Carignan

    LE21 Grenache Carignan – with Grape Skins (April 2022 release)

    LE21

    Grenache Carignan – Garnacha Cariñena in Spanish – is at once intense and harmonious. Deep ruby red with alluring aromas of blackberry, spice, and leather nuances. A provocative palate of black fruit, cherry, red berry and plum with well-integrated oak and accents of licorice and spice. Rich velvety tannins, moderate acidity, and a long savoury finish.

    ADDITIONAL FOOD PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: Grilled lamb, sausages, hearty winter stews

    MANCHUELA, SPAIN
    The climate in Manchuela is ideal for reds; the inland region has a continental climate with high daytime temperatures and long hours of sunshine but is still close enough to the coast to experience cool nights thanks to Mediterranean winds. This temperature swing creates favourable conditions for red grapes to slowly ripen, perfectly developing tannin, colour, and varietal character. The resulting wines show excellent flavour, colour, and mouthfeel.
