For the moment, this is a one off production, as Pieter is unsure whether he is going to be able to get hold of the grapes again. With such balance of white peaches, almond blossom, lemon curd and cob nuts, we highly recommend you to indulge right now - a stunning new wine to the collection.


Tasting Notes

Here we have something new and rather exciting for Pieter. For the BLANKbottle groupies, you may have noticed that he began to use more Grenache Blanc in his blends in 2015. Mostly Grenache Blanc from 3 blocks - Piekenierskloof, Voor Paardeberg and Wellington, and there's a little Grenache Gris as well in there (about 10%) which gives it this lovely greengage lift.


Press Note:

Jancis Robinson MW: "Smooth and silky with some lightly oily citrus character. Fine and friendly with masses of fruit and freshness." Julia Harding MW: "Not giving away much on the nose, smells of grainy pears. Dry and fresh with the freshness as much from the texture as the acidity. Chewy and deep with perfect harmony between texture and flavour. Drink 2017-2021" Mainly Grenache Blanc but from three different sites and a little bit of the first Grenache Gris planted in South Africa.
