Grape varieties: Cabernet Franc 40%, Cabernet Sauvignon 35%, Merlot 20%, Petit Verdot 5%

Style of wine: Wood matured Dry Red Wine.

Vinification: The grapes were sources from selected mountain vineyards in the Banghoek area, a ward in Stellenbosch for their individuality. After harvesting, and cooling, the grapes were sorted, crushed and then put in red wine fermenters and a cold soak done @ 7° C for 4 days. After inoculation with selected yeast, the pump over’s started on all but the Merlot on which we prefer to do manual punch down to extract the colour and flavour. Extented maceration of up to 24 days also lends depth of flavours and structure. The finished wine underwent MLF in barrel and further maturation for 18 months before carefully putting together the blend prior to bottling. All the barrels used were French oak and 60 % were new and the rest 2nd fill.

Winemaker’s notes: Our Flagship Red Wine. Delicate flavours of fynbos, cedar and cigar box, all beautifully wrapped in blackberry fruit. The palate is reminiscent of spice, dark chocolate and cinnamon with elegant and soft tannins. This is a unique wine which will intrigue even the best connoisseur. Will age beautifully over the next 5-7 years.

Allée Bleue Pinotage 2015

2015 Pinotage 2015 - s

Origin: Franschhoek / Piekenierskloof

Label: Allée Bleue

Farm location: R45 Franschhoek Valley

Wine maker: Van Zyl Du Toit

Grape varieties: Pinotage

Style of wine: Wood Matured Dry Red Wine

Vinification: The grapes were sourced from a selected vineyard on our estate and also a 51 years old vineyard in Piekenierskloof. We have been farming these special blocks differently for the past 6 years, and this wine is a culmination of those efforts. After harvesting, sorting and cooling, the grapes were crushed and a cold soak done for 4 days at 7 °C. After inoculation with a selected yeast strain, the punch downs started intensely for only 4 days before pressing at 8 ºB. This ensures a supple and smooth Pinotage. The finished wine underwent malolactic fermentation in the barrel and further maturation for 14 months before blending and bottling. Of the barrels used, 50% were new and the rest 2nd and 3rd fill. We also use 5 % American Oak in this wine.

Winemaker’s notes: Intense brick red colour. Upfront fruit bringing to mind ripe cherries and plums followed by sweet vanilla pods , liquorice and some cedar wood, all reflecting the cultivar. The palate is rich, soft and very elegant. A full flavoured Pinotage that depicts the terroir and cultivar.

Drink: Will age well over the next 3 – 5 years.

Analysis:

Alcohol 14.3 %
Residual Sugar 2.2 g/l
Total Acidity 5.8 g/l
pH 3.5

Food pairing: The wine is ideal for Springbok loin Beef Wellington with a berry jus and glazed vegetables.
