This 2016 Allouran is simply delicious...
About The Wine
When you think of Blue Poles you think of the Allouran, and this is a top shelf release of this much-loved wine.
The classic blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc is one song in this release - the latter adding structure and perfume to the plump, juicy goodness of Merlot.
Alongside some of its more ambitiously priced Margaret River counterparts, the Allouran is phenomenal value for money.
Allouran sells out quicker each year. Act quick if you want some for yourself.
About Blue Poles
Blue Poles is the combined venture of Mark Gifford and Tim Markwell - a pair of experienced geologists who have in the last decade or so created one of the undoubted 'cult hero' labels of Margaret River.
The vast majority of the Blue Poles range is produced from a single block in the Wallcliff sub-region of Margaret River. While Merlot and Cabernet Franc dominate the plantings, other rarely seen varieties for the region also find a home including Fiano, Teroldego and Marsanne.
Their red wines are extraordinary, not only for their old world charm and quality but the outrageous value they deliver. There are only ever tiny volumes and these wines are scarcely available outside the Blue Poles mailing list.
