For immediate release Simonsberg-Paarl, South Africa – 8 September 2013.
On the heels of being chosen by Wine Spectator as of the top 20 values from South Africa, the Bloem red collected a bit of bling at this year’s Michelangelo International Wine Awards. Judged by renowned wine industry personalities from around the world, the Michelangelo award affirms Bloem’s appeal to an international pale”e.
As a newcomer to the competition the Bloem red scored alongside wines of significantly higher price and held its own with household names with hundreds of years’ history.
The South African winelands lie at the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom, the smallest but most biodiverse of the world’s six floral kingdoms. Bloem, derived from the Dutch word for “flower”, captures the essence of this unique and dynamic ecosystem with refreshing fruit aromas, clean, creamy flavours, and a hint of exotic spice. Bloem wines are made at Noble Hill using a blend of fruit grown on the estate and surrounding coastal vineyards.
Noble Hill is a 30 hectare vineyard making wines that are juicy yet austere, elegant, and above all unique to the place they are made. Noble Hill is located in the Simonsberg-Paarl appellation of origin, which has produced some of South Africa’s finest wines dating back to the late 17th century. Bloem wines are available within South Africa at Makro stores and inthe United States at wine shops and restaurants in New York and Virginia.
