Allee Bleue Cape Ruby 2013

Intense aromas of cherries, ripe plums and Christmas pudding. Well supported by rich vanilla, liquorice and an intriguing spiciness. A truly complex and layered wine.

This wine is ideal for any rich decadent chocolate dessert or any of one of its sinful friends. Also great with some of our fantastic local cheeses and preserves.
