Allee Bleue Brut Rose 2013

Allee Bleue Brut Rose 2013

A fresh and lively MCC filled with delicate flavours of strawberries, rose petals and candyfloss. The palate is clean and refreshing with great balance and zesty minerality. Memories in a bottle.

Will pair well with bruschettas topped with fresh salmon and a herb cream cheese. Sushi platters with Tempura prawns, Norwegian Salmon Roses and Tuna Nigiri.

Made in the traditional way, this wine was blended only using the cuvee (first pressing). A blend of Pinotage, Chenin Blanc and Pinot Noir was used to emphasize the fruit on this Brut Rose. After bottling, the wine spent 10 months on the lees to develop the delicate brioche flavours that these wines are known for. Disgorgement took place in August 2013 and the wine will develop further richness on the cork.

Maturation: Tank and bottle fermented then aged for 14 months.
