Allee Bleue L'Amour Toujours 2008

Allee Bleue L'Amour Toujours 2008

A distinctive wine worthy of its flagship status. The generous character supplied by the dark sensual Cabernet fruit is perfectly balanced by the supple structure of the Merlot and Grenache. Shiraz lends spice and complexity to this fine wine. An elegant well structured wine: fynbos, rosepetals, raspberries, cedar wood and cloves on the nose. Mocca chocolate, red berries, stewed fruit and spices on the palate.

Rib-eye steak simply grilled with smoked rocksalt and served with hand-cut chips and Béarnaise. Rich beef casserole ovenbaked until tender and reduced.
