Allee Bleue Black Series Single Vineyard Syrah 2015

Allee Bleue Black Series Single Vineyard Syrah 2015

A brooding Shiraz with heaps of white pepper spice, ripe plums, violets, cinnamon and a hint of liquorice on the nose. The palate is super elegant and soft with all the flavours pulling through to the palate.

in the vineyard : Taking the right Shiraz Clone, SH 99, for those who were unsure, manicuring the vineyard, 4 green harvest to limit the crop and a winemaker that has spent some time in Côte-Rôtie and you will be amazed what you can do from a vineyard in Franschhoek. Most of the work happens in the vineyard.

in the cellar : So in the cellar the 5 day cold soak, enough delastages, 30 days on the skins, the best yeast to lift the floral notes and knowing and trusting your coopers and our work is done. A winemaker’s selection of the six best barrels, 80% new French Oak, matured for 16 month prior to being bottled unfiltered and unfined. With alcohol of 14.98 % and a TA of 6.7 g/l all is fine with this genuine Syrah.
