BLANKbottle Im Hinterhofkabuff 2018

R375.00 inc. VAT
"The Im Hinterhofkabuff vineyard is small and is planted in pure yellow sandstone rock, vines trellised onto single poles - like they do in the Mosel, Germany. There is no irrigation and the slope is steep. It is exposed to the rough and gusty South-easter wind blowing straight from Hermanus. It is a cold and rugged site which produce very little grapes - some years resulting in only one barrel. The 2018 vintage produced two barrels. It is 100% Weisser Riesling, spontaneously fermented in old, small French Oak barrels. It is a concentrated riper style of Weisser Riesling. It has a firm acidity and mineral within the rich style. It will age beautifully (the current 2012 drinking beautifully at the moment). My aim is not to imitate German-style Rieslings - we try to capture the South African sunlight in this wine" - Producer Note

Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese 2006 (187ml)

R1,495.00 inc. VAT
"Trockenbeerenauslese (TRAW-ken Bear-en OWS-lay-zuh) is German for “dried berry selection.” This is the most labor-intensive and intensely concentrated wine that we can produce. It is made by individually selecting only the fully shriveled, botrytis-affected grapes and pressing them very slowly to yield a tiny bit of ultra-dense nectar. The wine has a multi-layered, deeply complex aroma of fruits and is so intensely sweet on the palate that it makes you shudder. But once again, Riesling’s naturally brilliant acidity keeps the wine lively and freshening." - Producer Note
