Nestled between the Breede River and the Langeberg Mountains, Bon Courage is the showpiece estate of Robertson. Its stately Cape Dutch homestead dates back to 1818 but grape growing only started there in 1921. Three generations later, the Bruwer family wins armfuls of awards every vintage. Bon Courage was Robertson’s best performing winery at the South African Young Wines Show 2009, with nine Champion Wines and 19 Gold medals. Shortly afterwards the 2009 Gooseberry Bush beat 200 wines to win the ‘Best White Blend’ Trophy. It’s an uplifting glassful of grassy, kiwi fruit Colombard with a dash of lemony Sauvignon. Zesty and appetising, this wine is best served chilled solo, as a party wine, or with avocado and prawn salad or grilled chicken.
