The Empire Strikes Back, BLANKbottle, Stellenbosch, South Africa 2020
Regular price £30.40
An all-Stellenbosch white blend of Verdelho, Roussanne, Marsanne, Chardonnay, Chenin blanc and Viognier. Lots of fruit sweetness and ripeness, seemingly a little more traditional, but has that slightly wild element to it that defines BlankBottle wines.White White Blend
Critically-acclaimed South African winemaker Pieter H. Walser 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.
