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: In the past Epileptic Inspiration consisted of 100% Elgin vineyards - a straight Semillon. With the 2018 and 2019 we tried something different. Blending in a Baardskeerdersbos Semillon at one third. But with the 2020 we felt like the best is to stick to the basics and keep it in all Elgin. The wine therefore is a combination of Amphora & old French oak fermented/aged components. Personally I feel, due to extremely hard vineyard work by the owner Andre van Wyk, his team Marthinus and Patric, assisted by viticulturist Jaco Engelbrecht, this is up to date our best expression of Epileptic Inspiration.
TASTING NOTES: 100% Semillon. Incredibly complex, savoury nutty notes interspersed with stone fruit and a saline finish.
