Pieter Walser is one of the most innovative winemakers in the world, and is the producer of some of SA’s most coveted wines that you’ve probably never tasted. Within BLANKbottle there are no 2 wines alike and about 30% of the wines are once-off limited editions. Pieter crafts unique wine blends, picking about 35 grape varieties from 60 vineyards around the Cape. Each of his wines is bottled and labelled according to the unique story behind it. The main aim of BLANKbottle wines is to provide an honest, personal taste with no preconceived expectations that come with certain vintages or styles.
There's a huge opportunity with Semillon in South Africa and this is, marrying grapes from Elgin and Cape Agulhas that are fermented in amphorae and old wood. Pithy, herbal and toasty, it has lanolin and honeysuckle aromas and stony, tangy aftertaste.
