Allee Bleue Starlette Pinotage 2011

Allee Bleue Starlette Pinotage 2011

The wine has an intense ruby red colour. Abundant strawberries and ripe cherries flavours on the nose. A slight hint of chocolate, liquorice and coffee gives added complexity. The palate is smooth and soft with beautiful fruit that lingers.

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