Allee Bleue Sauvignon Blanc 2022
Welcomed by intense blackcurrant leaf and a hint of asparagus aromas. This is followed by a myriad of tropical flavours, passion fruit, mango and grape fruit taking the lead. The palate is alive with zesty green peeper nuisances which flows into a slight saline and seaweed character. Resulting in a great example of this site-specific Sauvignon Blanc.

Other The grapes were sourced from selected vineyards in the Darling area on the West Coast of RSA. Picked at optimal ripeness to ensure the freshness that Sauvignon is renowned for. Some skin contact and lees rubbing of 4 days was done at 3°C to extract the delicate fruit flavours. The juice was racked and inoculated with yeast and cold fermented in tank until dry. 25 % of the wine was also fermented in older 400 l barrels to add complexity and depth of flavour. The wine was aged on the lees for 2 months before racking and sulphuring to ensure a silky aftertaste. Another 3 months of lees aging was done prior to bottling.
