Farm Location:  R45 Franschhoek Valley

Style of wine: Wood matured fortified red wine

Verification: The Pinotage were left on the vines until they reach 28,5 °B and then harvested by hand. After crushing, yeast was added and then the skins and juice was allowed to ferment to a sugar level of 80 g/l. The wine was then pressed and fortified using grape spirits. This was followed by aging in older French oak barrels.

Alcohol 18.6 % vol

Total Acidity 5 gm/l
pH 3.52

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

Allée Bleue Viognier Grappa 2015

Label: Allée Bleue

Farm Location:  R45 Franschhoek Valley

Wine-maker:  Van Zyl du Toit

Grape Varieties: Viognier

Style of wine: Premium Husk Spirits

Verification: The grapes were sources from a special block of Viognier on the banks of the Dwars River. After crushing the grappa was fermented on the skins in special plastic containers until dry. Afterwards the skins and wine were distilled (From there Husk Spirits) in a special copper still and only the heart was used for the second distillation. After that the grappa underwent some aging and maturing before bottling in November 2011.

Winemaker’s notes: The flavours are potent and powerful, yet with a quaint elegance. Rich tropical fruits, hints of apricot and fig welcomes you on the nose.Alight hint of nuttiness reminds of rich Christmas pudding. The palate is clean, refreshing and SMOOTH. The grappa is well balanced and not overwhelming as many people would think. But it does kick like a female ostrich in heat.

Analysis: 43%

Food pairing: Serve as the perfect match with your best Espresso. Will also pair well with summer fruit cocktail with a grappa and pistachio ice cream.
