Leadfoot Louie – Adrice Wines’ white Bordeaux blend - is a staple every year on our Spring/Summer tasting sheet. “Leadie” as we lovingly refer to her, is consistently beautiful, easy to drink, and our wine club members swear that we must prick a small hole in each bottle because it empties so quickly!
The 2021 vintage of Leadie is winemaker Pam’s favorite so far. Typically a 50/50 blend….the warmer summer of 2021 forced Pam to blend in a bit more Semillon than Sauvignon Blanc to maintain the balance in this wine. Leadie greets your nose with grassy/tarragon Herbaceousness – along with ripe pineapple, nectarine, and Meyer lemon. Her bright medium+ acidity hits your back palate with tart citrus curd, ripe peach, and a mango finish.
With food, Leadfoot Louie will pair beautifully with a Caprese salad with a balsamic drizzle, ceviche, pineapple mango salsa, or a tequila lime chicken. Serve Leadie a tich warmer than you’d serve a normal white…when the Semillon warms up a bit…dang is it beautiful!!!
We promise we didn’t prick any holes in the bottles...but Leadfoot Louie does go down easy. We recommend picking up several bottles because we ALWAYS sell out of Leadie early!
