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.
If we can be sure of one thing, the gold bling bling label and chunky bottle gives a wee hint to its contents! Unashamedly flamboyant, big and bold. The 2021 rendition is pure Mourvedre, and big on the spice! Red currants, Christmas cake, grated dark chocolate, almost even a fudgy note with a distinct nod to its Spanish relatives. For all its bold warmth, there's a prettiness too among all that riotous spiced fruit. Smooth and finishing long, with a liquorice and mineral-accented finish.
