Critically-acclaimed winemaker – exciting wines
Blankbottle – Pieter H. Walser
We are delighted to be able to introduce to you the Blankbottle range from critically-acclaimed South African winemaker Pieter H. Walser. Below, Pieter explains when he first established the basic premise of the 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. Pick of the whites is arguably Pieter’s ‘Moment of Silence’, a blend of Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Viognier from Wellington. Fruit is selected from 7 distinct vineyard sites across the region in order to fully encompass all variations in terroirs across the geographical area.
