Allee Bleue Isabeau 2008

This wine is a tribute to the successful women on the farm and an embodiment of the spirit and skills of current and former owners and their winemaker.
A sophisticated, elegant wine. Perfumes of orange blossoms and lemon butter. Layers of limey citrus and rich, creamy butterscotch unfold on the palate.

Serve with Scallops seared in nutty burnt butter, dressed with freshly squeezed lime, torn coriander leaves and a splash of new vintage peppery olive oil. Tea smoked chicken breast topped with chopped nuts and honey and caramelized under the grill, serve with fresh crispy bread and the best farm butter.
