The Platters Wine Guide
Tim Atkins Award | 91 Points
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.
