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.

It received a glowing 93 points from Gary Walsh and 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 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.

Their red wines are extraordinary not only for their old world charm and quality but the outrageous value they deliver. Tiny volumes produced but definitely a producer to get to know.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Blackcurrant, plum, menthol, perfume and lift, perhaps some stewed fruit, spicy biscuity oak. Medium bodied, deep plummy fruit, tobacco, plump tannin, juicy acidity, and fine pencil tannin and earthy flavours on the finish, perhaps some raspberry. Texture and drinkability is a highlight here." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
