PRODUCER: In 2004, a lady came to Pieter's house (then also his office) 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 ~ P Walser
Having no indication of cultivar on the bottle, not only demands complete honesty when it comes to quality, but it allows the opportunity to introduce once-off limited runs of interesting wines. BLANKbottle is an honest brand that had no limitations when it comes to style, vintage, area or cultivars. Something for someone with an open mind and an adventurous heart.
STORY: Sauvignon blanc from Cape L'Agulhas. “Beard-Shavers-Bush”,If you translate Baardskeerdersbos into English, it means “Beard-Shavers-Bush”, named after a famous spider that lives in these parts of the country. This spider builds its nest from human hair... and the myth goes that when you go to bed at night the Baardskeerder spider will climb into your bed and shave your beard for the construction of his home.
TASTING NOTES: Funky pea-pod character; not a bright pea-shoot character, but something a little more deep and vegetal from Sauvignon and Semillon. A touch of earthiness and tobacco again. The palate has a really dry, pithy lemon dryness and agility.
