Just Fine Wine & Winexpert proudly present to you the LE17 Collection:
What is LE17?
Each year, Winexpert produces a limited number of exclusive 8-week wine kits. Released on a monthly basis beginning in January, there are three reds and two whites to choose from. In addition to their limited availability, there are a number of other factors that make these wines so exceptional: they can range from unique blends to hot industry trends to rare, hard to obtain and sought after varietals and regions. The main thing to note is that these wines are produced in limited quantity and are available by pre-order only.
So how do you know what the LE varietals will taste like if you have to order before the kits are even made? Take advantage of an opportunity to sample 'commercial equivalents' of the LE17 wines in advance of the pre-order deadline at Just Fine Wine's LE17 Wine Tasting taking place October 29, 2017 . Join us for an enjoyable afternoon filled with fun, food, and of course, wine! This casual and entertaining event also features the incomparable Tim Ellison - come find out for yourself why attendees have demanded him back for a sixth straight year. Reserve your tickets today!
- ECLIPSE Barossa Valley Shiraz w/Grape Skins -- Ready To Bottle 2018 -- (Now Taking Reservations. First Time Offered since 2011!)
- Since it's release in Fall 2013, this wine has hit the ground running. Rarely does a new wine capture a loyal following as fast as Eclipse Barossa Valley Shiraz. Hailing from Australia’s quintessential wine region, this wine is a big, full bodied Shiraz with rich notes of chocolate and spice that have become synonymous with Barossa Valley and Australian wine in general. Pair with an equally rich dish to stand up to the big aromas and flavours. Think thick stews, or grilled steaks with sautéed mushrooms. The dark fruit notes in this wine would also pair beautifully with roast pork and cranberry chutney. Typically, single bottles of Shiraz from Barossa Valley can be found in liquor stores in the $20 to $40 range. However, there are a number of examples hitting $60, $80 and over $100 per bottle!
- SELECTION Argentine Malbec w/Grape Skins -- Ready To Bottle 2018 -- (Now Taking Reservations. First Time Offered Since 2014!)
An truly excellent wine that unfortunately flew under the radar of many wine lovers for years. That is no longer the case as Malbec is a wine that has gained a strong foothold in both the commercial and craft winemaking markets within the past 5 to 10 years. Selection Argentine Malbec with grape skins is a medium/full-bodied, dry red wine with firm acidity, rich tannins and generous alcohol levels. Dark, inky purple colour and ripe fruit flavours of plums, black cherry and blackberry give an almost jammy character on the palate. Smoke, earth, leather, wild game, tobacco and white/black pepper along with intriguingly spicy notes make for an interesting medley of aromas and flavours, adding to layers of complexity. Definitely a wine for red meat, it is adaptable enough to stand up to spicy cuisines, such as Mexican, Cajun, Indian, Thai or Italian, working especially well with barbecue and other hard to pair meat-based dishes.
