Critically-acclaimed winemaker – exciting wines
We are delighted to be able to introduce to you the BLANKbottle range from critically-acclaimed South African winemaker Pieter H. Walser. Pieter explains when he first established the basic premise of the BLANKbottle concept: “In 2004, a lady came to my house to buy wine. She asked for anything but Shiraz. “I don’t drink Shiraz”, were her exact words. I poured her a glass of wine. She loved it and bought 3 cases. It was a straight Shiraz. It’s a fact – we do judge the book by its cover.” And so was born the idea of a range of wines that has no limitations when it comes to style, vintage, area or grape varieties. The result is a selection of wines that excite and intrigue the mind in equal measure.
100% Verdelho. Aromas of peaches, apricots, pineapple juice, lime, green melon and slight hints of jasmine that follow through to the palate. Fresh acidity and elegance, lots of fruit. Deliciously restrained against a slight minerality at the back of the palate.
