in the vineyard : Living up to its elevated status of celebrated 2008 vintage fame, this next vintage of Blanc de Mer is a winemaker's challenge. Fortunately weather conditions cast a magic spell over vintage 2009 where near perfect grapes were produced in all departments.

in the cellar : this blend varies from year to year, this year it is once again dominated by true Rhine Riesling. An action packed composition of varieties ready to claim every bit of the magic attributed to the 2008 which was Stephen Spurrier's choice of best New World White in Decanter Wine Magazine May 2009.
