Already the beautiful red colour announces a special wine, because the grapes used for the Allée Bleue Black Series Old Vine Pinotage come from 45-year-old vines. The aroma play delights with numerous fruity notes ranging from blackberries to raspberries, strawberries and plums. Nuances of fine dark chocolate and a hint of liquorice beautifully coat the berry notes and give the Allée Bleue Black Series Old Vine Pinotage its impressive richness. Silky smooth, the red wine, which was matured for sixteen months in French oak, caresses the palate and provides the connoisseur with an unforgettable taste experience because only the best three barrels were selected for the expressive Allée Bleue Black Series Old Vine Pinotage.

Allée Bleue proudly produces typical South African Wine

The winery Allée Bleue in the picturesque Franschhoek valley is one of the oldest wineries in South Africa. Tradition and the pride in South African wine make the vineyard so special. The winemaker Van Zyl Du Toit has already made a name for himself in the wine world at Simonsig with the awarded Cap Classique wines. He is now dedicated to one objective at Allée Bleue: making typical South African wine of the highest quality. Especially the grape varieties Pinotage and Chenin Blanc are dear to his heart, as they carry the attitude towards life and the flavour finesse of South Africa within them like no other vines do. Despite being no Chenin Blanc but a cuvee from Chardonnay, Sémillon and Viognier, the white wine Isabeau is considered to be the winery’s flagship. Not for nothing, as due to its rich aromas and fruity taste it belongs to the Top 100 wines of the country.

The Family Dauphin from Allée Bleue

Allée Bleue has been owned by Friedrich-Wilhelm Dauphin for several years now; before that he has internationally succeeded with his high quality and stylish office furniture. The ongoing passion for the Wineland South Africa has led him and his wife to follow this passion with excellent premium wines at Allée Bleue. Due to an extraordinarily high personal commitment these two succeeded in that, together with their excellent team. Every individual sip is brim-full of the love for the country and its culinary possibilities.

Allée Bleue has an artistic Focus

Wines from Allée Bleue are true pieces of art in wine production. No wonder that the family Dauphin also devotes its time to artistic aspects and establishes such a focus for their estate. Emil Sogor, the renowned artist who is well-versed in many areas and who creates in the space between graphics, design, painting and sculpture gives the winery a very special look. His pieces are exhibited all over the yard and feature drawings, paintings and sculptures alike. He was successful in creating a bridge between the breathtaking landscape, the tradition of the winery and the modern 21st century at Allée Bleue. And all this with an elegance that is by no means inferior to the wines of the estate.
