Description

Description

Provençal-style dry rosé made from Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvèdre and Viognier. Blom is unique in the South African context in that it was blended in the juice-stage. Fermenting the juice together as a unit secures a perfect integration between the different varieties. We use grapes from pre-selected blocks and we do not extract juice from our premium red varieties to make rosé. Blom receives a small percentage of French oak treatment during fermentation, but we do not classify the wine as wooded. It only serves to intensify flavours – without sacrificing the beautiful red berry fruit.

 

Blom remains one of our top sellers, and the first rosé ever, in the history, to be nominated by Platter’s Wine Guide for a five-star rating.
