2010 BLANC DE MER

 2010 BLANC DE MER




This white blend has enjoyed an evolutionary development over the last twenty years with its recent history four years of inclusion of Viognier as its secondary blending partner with the dominant Riesling grape.

This year's blend is both bold in colour and structure. The composition once again enjoys Riesling as the primary player, 40% with Viognier at 33%, Sauvignon Blanc 13%, Chenin Blanc 11 %, and Chardonnay 3 %.  

While Blanc de Mer is our most price effective label, it need not be humble in its status.  Numerous tastings have offered it every opportunity not to be humble. Perhaps the most noteworthy accolade was Stephen Spurrier's top rating in Decanter Magazine (May 2009) where he nominated the Blanc de Mer as the new world's best white!

This vintage enjoyed dry conditions with low cropping levels being offered. It has a deep colour with a very full palate feel.  Very rich with tastes of peaches, quinces and pear which all blend to provide a strong and lengthy finish.
