Blank Bottle Im Hinterhofkabuff Elgin 2018
PRODUCER: BLANKbottle is not bound to a specific wine area or wine style. It’s from many different vineyards, scattered across the Western Cape of South Africa, different regions, micro-climates, soil types, and ultimately leads to different wine styles. It is driven by quality, adventure, excitement and mystery. And at the centre of it all, are the guys in the vineyards, viticulturists, winemakers, family, friends and BLANKbottle fans.
WINEMAKING: Juice went into large old wooden fermenters, no added sulphur and fermented spontaneously.
TASTING NOTE: An incredibly pretty floral nose with more savoury stone fruit and spiced citrus palate.
STORY: After being visited by a German journalist for wine magazine Stern, Pieter's office for the winery was nicknamed HINTERHOFKABUFF, which translates to BACKYARDSHACK due to its run-down appearance with skew walls but with heaps of soul.
