Allee Bleue Sauvignon Blanc 2023
Allee Bleue Sauvignon Blanc 2023
One is welcomed by intense blackcurrant leaf and a hint of asparagus aromas. This is followed by a myriad of tropical flavours, passion fruit, mango, with grape fruit taking the lead. The palate is alive with zesty green pepper nuances, which flow into a slight saline and seaweed character - a great example of this site-specific Sauvignon Blanc.

Wine Information
Brand Group Premium Range
Other The grapes were sourced from selected vineyards in the Darling area, on the West Coast of RSA. Picked at optimal ripeness, ensured the freshness that Sauvignon is renowned for. After 4 days of limited skin contact, and lees rubbing at 3°C to extract the delicate fruit flavours, the juice was racked, inoculated with yeast, and cold fermented in the tank until dry. 25 % of the wine was 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. An additional 3 months of lees aging was done prior to bottling.
