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.
The first 100% Pinot Noir from Pieter Walser in many a year, and what a beautiful thing it is. Although Elgin fruit, this is quite a rich and ripe Pinot with stewed strawberries, cinnamon, pot pourri and cherry cola, with a little Turkish delight on the palate, fresh cut flowers, soft leather and cherry liquour.
