Bloemcool Bergbok

The oddball wine sublime from Bloemcool

I was absolutely delighted when my bottle of Bloemcool Bergbok wine arrive at my door, the presentation and look was down to earth, unique and the bottle was cutely snuggled between cauliflower and broccoli.  The look of the bottle really stood out to me, with regards to the hand stuck on label (I like this because it shows such care and that a job was created instead of using machines) and the fact that the labels are embedded with cauliflower seeds ~ so after enjoying the bottle, you can peel off the label and actually grow your own cauliflower, which I found completely innovative and refreshing.  On to the wine| Grenache Blanc 56% Chenin 41% Colour: Beautiful honey gold colour


Nose: Earthy and yielding with some fruit complexity flavours of quince, apricot, loquat and ripe banana peel  Palate: pleasantly oxidative style with some nuttiness and some earthy notes - good mouthful and palate weight with a well-balanced acidity but slightly short on the finish  Overview: This oddball was definitely intriguing, I would love to explore more of what Bloemcool has to offer
