BLANKbottle “Searching for L’Estrange” 2019

R285.00 inc. VAT
"A whole-bunch, clay pot, bees-waxy Palomino. The wine is true to it’s name - (L’E) STRANGE! It's made from humble Palomino, which originated in the Sherry producing areas of Spain. The cuttings were brought to the African continent by ship and planted in 1965 on the mountain in Piekenierskloof, 550 meters above sea level. The 54-year old bush-vine vineyard, grown in African soil was made in African pots made from Limpopo clay, enhanced by the wax of African bees producing honey from African flora - meticulously guided, bottled and labelled by the colourful hands of the African people." - Producer Note

BLANKbottle Im Hinterhofkabuff 2018

R310.01 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

BLANKbottle Kortpad Kaaptoe 2018

R207.00 inc. VAT
"Taking its name from a footpath that was a shortcut to Cape Town from the Swartland, this pure Fernão Pires is surely a one off in the Cape. Rich, broad and palate coating, it has spice and peachy sweetness and abundant perfume" - Tim Atkin MW, South African Special Report 2019

BLANKbottle TBC Non-Vintage

R230.00 inc. VAT
"I spent 4 days driving from Avignon all along the Rhône river through Hermitage, Crozes Hermitage, Condrieu to Côte Rôtie. It was fascinating and invigorating. Condrieu’s wines (or rather the ones I tasted), were mineral, fresh and lean with depth in character and complexity - and made from Viognier - a varietal we struggle with in South Africa. SA Viognier are mostly over extracted, rich, sweet and floral. I have access to a really nice block of Viognier on the slopes of the Helderberg mountain facing Stellenbosch. I have been making wine from that block since 2012, but,up until today, have only used it in blends. So I decided to do an experiment. We picked the vineyard in two sections. The first picking on a relatively low sugar and a second picking as a ripe component. A combination of the two were aged for 2 years in old small barrel French Oak - 50% of the final blend. The other 50% was an early picking of the same vineyard the following year. In other words; the final wine is 50% early picking that spent one year in barrel (2018 vintage) and the other 50% a combination of early and late picking aged 2 years in barrel (2017 vintage). And I had no name for the wine. You know, it does happen that sometimes the name and label of a wine just doesn’t happen when it should… My distributers pressured me to get the wine out and after a suggestion by one of the reps, the name became TBC - To Be Confirmed." - Producer Note

Castello ColleMassari Melacce Montecucco Vermentino 2018

R195.01 inc. VAT
"Clean Vermentino with a fruity-fresh first sip. Aromas of Granny Smith apple, white peach and sweet limes with a hint of exotic fruits. Crispy and dry on the palate with fantastic minerality. The after-taste is dry and indicates a good pressing as well as an aromatic precision. An ideal summer wine very elegant and classy." - Producer Note

David & Nadia “Hoë-Steen” Chenin Blanc 2019

"From a 1968 vineyard between Malmesbury and Darling. Striking aromatics of flowers, naartjie and stone fruit plus some leesy complexity and spice. The palate is rich and relatively thick textured – great depth of flavour with a gently savoury finish." - Christian Eedes, Winemag

David & Nadia “Plat’bos” Chenin Blanc 2019

"From a vineyard on Paardebosch planted in 1987 on granite. An exquisite nose with notes of flowers, dried herbs before lime, lemon and white peach. The palate, meanwhile, is crystalline – wonderfully pure and focused with great energy and length. Hits the target with pinpoint accuracy." - Christian Eedes, Winemag

David & Nadia “Skaliekop” Chenin Blanc 2019

"From a vineyard on Paardeberg property Paardebosch planted in 1985 on shale. Potpourri, blossom, white and yellow fruit plus a little white pepper on the nose. The palate has excellent fruit density matched by bright acidity, the finish long and dry. Great focus and flavour intensity." - Christian Eedes, Winemag
