Grape: Semillon


Blank Bottle Nothing to Declare 2018

Like a Hunter S Thompson of South African winemaking – Pieter has scoured the Cape Winelands – from Paarl to Stellenbosch to Robertson and the Swartland – in search of complementary fruit to create this gorgeous, spicy, pithy, endlessly complex white blend. This is gonzo winemaking – a cuvée which makes use of all the out-there, uncommon varieties that Pieter has uncovered on his adventures. To make things even better this cuvée is delicious with olive tapenade on toast and with fish like red mullet served with olive tapenade, or even just some fish with fresh leaves and a squeeze of lemon. Pieter conceived this wine as a tribute to the vine smugglers of South Africa – the risk-takers who have provided winemakers like Pieter and others of the new generation in South Africa the foundation to take this South African wines to new heights.

Full Moon White 2018

'These wines are inspired by the light yet complex and textured wines grown on the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna, Sicily. While driving around the Grenache vineyard our viticulturist friend mentioned a field blend vineyard planted in 1977 in the Paardeberg with 10 interplanted varieties. “Yes we’d love to buy a ton of that if we could!” And so it was. On 7 February the grapes were picked: Chenin Blanc, Palomino, Semillon, Semillon Gris, Colombard, Crouchen Blanc, Viognier, Muscat d’Alexandrie, Chardonnay; Sauv Blanc vines, all growing amongst each other. These were whole-bunch pressed and left to ferment naturally, then aged in one old 500L for a whole year. Naturally of various ripeness levels at picking time, the variation in flavour and acidity makes for an exceptionally interesting character, one that makes field blend like this so rewarding to make and so unique to drink. Cheers! 600 bottles made.' David Cope, Winemaker

Blank Bottle Orbitofrontal Cortex 2018

Orbitofrontal Cortex is named after the part of your brain where conscious decisions are made. It's fair to expect great things with a wine made as the consciously selected best of the best....! On the nose, we have layers of sun dried hay, tonnes of sweet conference pears, baked apples, even some fresh crunchy green apple acidity. It's an intricately put together number, but no fear, if you like your whites with texture, crunch, ripe fruit and with a story, then this is for you.

Blank Bottle Jimmy 2018

"Picked twice for different ripeness levels, this pure Verdelho comes from Willie Mostert's farm in the Voor Paardeberg. Spicy, leesy and complex, it has aniseed, pear and apricot skin notes underpinned by vivid acidity and old wood." - Tim Atkin MW, South African Special report 2019

Alheit Cartology Chenin Blanc Semillon 2018

'The traditional Cartology blend with a dominant 90% Chenin Blanc and 10% Semillon in support. As previous, this is a multi-vineyard, multi-regional blend to produce one of South Africa’s strongest white wine brands. The nose resonates with notes of fresh stable straw, honey on white toast, freshly squeezed peach juice, dusty granitic minerality and a subtle leesy, smoky touch of reduction. The palate shows an impressively spikey fresh acidity twinned with a crystalline yellow orchard fruit concentration so typical of so many 2018 South African whites. There is something so familiar about this Cartology yet also some intriguingly unique vintage characters of hawthorn, quince and unripe tangerines. This wine shows more focus, linearity and salinity than bigger previous vintages and strikes another powerful note for the premium white wines from the 2018 vintage.' Greg Sherwood MW

Alphabetical Red Vin Ordinaire 2017

A firm favourite with Swiggers and with top critics such as Jancis Robinson and Matthew Jukes, this Cape Bordeaux blend might just be the greatest creation since sliced bread. Or at least since the Turkey Feast sandwich. Without doubt one of the best-value South African wines on the market too. The bright, pure fruit has a compelling chocolatey, earthy richness to it. Candied orange dipped in dark chocolate, a hint of menthol and a lovely warm earthiness - think sunbaked earth and terracota pots with juicy autumn blackberries. It would work splendidly with a classic rosemary-studded shoulder of lamb.

Full Moon Grenache 2018

'These wines are inspired by the light yet complex and textured wines grown on volcanic slopes of Mount Etna, Sicily. Since there’s no Nerello Cuppucio or Mascalese here in SA, Grenache is the next best thing and it works a charm. The grapes are from a farm of old bush vines outside Darling and were picked on 13 February: early enough to ensure a good, fresh tannin – but not quite as aggresive as the 2016 vintage(!). Grapes were handpicked, footstomped and fermented naturally. A gentle basket-press and then the wine left in a single old 500L barrel for a whole year. Minimal sulphur added before bottling, this is a lean, mean Grenache machine that is drinking superbly already. Whoop! 600 bottles made.' David Cope, Winemaker
