Allée Bleue L'Amour Toujours 2016

Origin: Banghoek ( Ward in Stellenbosch)

Label: Allée Bleue

Farm location: R45 Franschhoek Valley

Wine maker: Van Zyl Du Toit

Grape varieties: Cabernet Franc 48 %, Cabernet Sauvignon 26 %, Merlot 21 %, Petit Verdot 3 %

Style of wine: Wood matured Dry Red Wine.

Vinification: The grapes were sourced 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 at 7° C for 4 days. After inoculation with selected yeast, the pump overs started on all but the Merlot on which we prefer to do manual punch downs 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, with 60 % 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.
