Allee Bleue Shiraz 2010

Allee Bleue Shiraz 2010

Intense deep red colour. A powerful bouquet of violets, spice and chocolate. The pallet is smooth and silky packed with berry fruit and spice nuances.

Ostrich kebabs basted with red currant jelly and freshly ground pink peppercorns and finished with a Shiraz reduction. Medallions of Springbok rubbed with cumin and flash roasted – served with spiced beetroot.
