Allee Bleue Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Star bright hue with shades of green. Sweet tropical fruit invites you on the nose. This is followed by intense passion fruit aromas well supported by hints of green pepper and typical herbaseousness. The palate is fresh and lively with loads of summer flavours and clean, crisp finish.

Light vegetarian pasta with fresh herbs. Scallops in a fresh citrus jus topped with marinated orange peel.

in the vineyard : The grapes were picked at optimal ripeness to ensure the freshness that Sauvignon is renowned for. The grapes were harvested at night.

in the cellar : The grapes were stored in a cool room until being sorted, crushed and pressed the following day. 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. The wine was aged on the lees for 3 months before racking and sulphuring to ensure a silky aftertaste. Another 2 months of lees aging was done prior to bottling.
