Allee Bleue Brut Rose 2015

The colour is a pale straw hue with shades of green. Abundant citrus and dried apricot welcomes you on the nose. Layers of spicy cinnamon and soft vanilla follow. The palate is silky with elegant flavours of summer fruits and a lingering lemony aftertaste.

Will pair well with Bruschetta topped with fresh salmon and herb cream cheese . Sushi platters with Tempura prawns, Norwegian Salmon Roses and Tuna Nigiri.

in the cellar : 

Made in the traditional way, this wine was blended only using the cuvee (first pressings). A blend of Pinot Noir & Pinotage was used to emphasize the fruit on this Brut Rose. After bottling the wine spent more than 18 months on the lees to develop the delicate brioche flavours that these winews are known for. Disgorgement took place in December 2016 and the wine will develop further richness on the cork.

Tank fermented and then bottle fermented and aged for more than 18 months .
