Wine with commitment
When the renovations on the farm buildings at Allée Bleue began in 2016, workers discovered a nest in the rafters – home to an owl and a pair of owlets.
This month a new range on easy-drinking wines was released … appropriately named Blue Owl Wine.
Both have loads of generous flavour – exactly what you want from an everyday drinking wine.
The Blue Owl Chardonnay is a fresh and zesty style of wine, packed with winter melon flavours, apricot nuances and a citrus aftertaste.
It’s just the wine to open when you’re sitting around chatting with friends … food wise it’s lovely with fresh pasta with green pepper, ham and a creamy herb sauce.
Likewise, the Blue Owl Merlot suits even the most informal social occasions, such as an evening around the braai. Elegant and fruit-driven (think ripe cherries and blackcurrant) it’s an excellent option to serve with a pasta topped basil, roasted cherry tomatoes, slivers of parmesan and drizzled with olive oil.
You’ll find the wines at your local bottlestore for around R50 a bottle
