Allee Bleue Starlette Pinotage 2014

Abundant strawberry and ripe cherry flavours on the nose. A slight hint of chocolate, liquorice and coffee gives added complexity. The palate is smooth and soft with beautiful berry fruit that lingers.

The wine is a perfect companion for a juice lamb roast with baby vegetables or fresh pasta at your favourite Italian place. Or enjoy it on its own.
