Allee Bleue L'Amour Toujours 2012

Our Flagship Red Wine. Delicate flavours of fynbos, cedar and cigar box, all beautifully wrapped in blackberry fruit. The palate is reminiscent of spice, dark chocolate and cinnamon with elegant and soft tannins. This is a unique wine which will intrigue even the best connoisseur.

Paired with confit of duck or a rich and delectable oxtail potjie with jacket sweet potatoes, this wine bring out the heart in any meal.
