Allee Bleue Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Aromatic dry white wine which is a crowd pleasing wine with a perfect fruit/acid balance and spicy mid-palate. Citrus and gooseberry flavours mingle on the crisp, lingering palate. Rich tropical flavours with aromas of granadilla, pineapple, gooseberries and green fig. A rewarding full citrus aftertaste with floral and tropical undertones that lingers on the palate.

Kudu carpaccio drizzled with peppery extra-virgin olive oil, capers, cracked black pepper and parmesan shavings - perfection. Classic asparagus steamed and served with a warm citrusy Hollandaise.
