Such a potent wine built for the long haul.
About The Wine
The Allouran is one of the best value Merlot/Cabernet Franc blends in the country.
For the first time, after much anticipation and a near perfect vintage in 2018, the Blue Poles team finally decided to bottle a reserve version of this cult favourite.
These are their best barrels of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, built in a more serious, cellaring style.
It's an impeccable wine. Surely the finest to date from this WA duo.
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.
