This cuvee is distinguished by excellent fruit balance with no single element dominating. It is simultaneously luscious in the mouth, yet clean and refreshing on the finish. Fruit flavours dominate with kiwi, peaches, pineapple and honeysuckle presenting strong palate influence.

Blanc de Mer is probably the only white blend from the Cape which predominantly has Riesling as its principal component. This being 49 % with Viognier at 22 %. The rest is Chenin Blanc 15 % and Sauvignon Blanc 12 %. The fifth component is just a small portion of Chardonnay 2 %.

Independents Note

:The nose has the crispness of green limes, lovely and fresh with an attractive floral character. The palate although light and fresh at the start is sweeter in the middle, more of an apricot and tropical fruit mix. The lime and mineral freshness shows again towards the back leaving the finish lovely and crisp. Derek Smedley MW 2010
