BLANK bottle – Good Wine, Real People, Great Stories

10 December 2018 by Richard

For a limited time only, we are offering 6 bottles for the price of 5 on this exclusive Good Wine Shop and BLANK bottle collaboration, click here to buy a case online. Offer ends 31st of December.

Pieter Walser is the brains behind the BLANK bottle concept. He reminds me of the most popular boy at school who effortlessly excels at everything he does. He shines as a cult winemaker, an artist, a marketer, a surfer, an actor, a negociant, a designer, an entrepreneur, a family man, a visionary, a raconteur, a party animal, a leader, a rebel, a genius, a magician… you get my drift. Whilst Pieter comfortably wears all these hats with great aplomb, he says he prefers not to wear a hat at all, not knowing how to label himself. Speaking of labels, it is really hard not judge his wines by their inimitable, ingenious labels, especially as Pieter draws every one himself and they all have an engaging and absorbing story.

New Wines

Some of the newly landed, limited edition wines – from left-to-right Epileptic Inspiration, Jaa-Bru & PhD.

Pieter’s very first, virtually self-taught effort at making wine was in his last year at Uni using a friend’s garage. Clearly he had a golden touch as he quickly sold on all he made, using his tenacity and radiating charm. His impecunious student status must have informed his decision to plough back every rand into buying more barrels and finding more extraordinary vineyards to source grapes.

In 2004, when Pieter was just beginning to bottle his own wines, one of his first customers proclaimed “I don’t do Shiraz”. So, Pieter poured her a glass of straight Shiraz, without telling her what is was. “I love it” she immediately bellowed! It was at that time that Pieter decided not to varietally label his wines, with the idea of breaking down all preconceived ideas about what you find yourself drinking.

Still to this day, Pieter has no land to his name and buys in grapes and rents vineyards, often on short-term contracts. Usually the wine’s provenance is shown as Western Cape, as the grapes that go in to the blends come from different districts. Some wines are repeated year after year, while others are one-off releases. The limitations are what excite him and there are always new parcels and opportunities arising.

In a nutshell, BLANK bottle is a series of limited edition wines, each with its own individual story, made from specially selected parcels of grapes from around the Cape. In terms of winemaking, this is about as boutique as it gets. Pieter’s scale-small winemaking is hands-off with old barrels being used so that the wine expresses a sense of place. They fit perfectly into our GOOD WINE, REAL PEOPLE, GREAT STORIES philosophy.

Pieter and Friends

Having built up such a good rapport with Pieter over the last couple of years, we recently asked if he would make a wine exclusively for us. He duly barrel-fermented and blended one barrel of Macabeo with a barrel of Fernão Pires, making just 670 bottles and drew a fetching label featuring members of The Good Wine Shop team. I get a hipster makeover with some dark glasses! It has an alluring stone fruit and tropical fruit nose – peach, guava and pineapple – delicate floral tones and a richly textured palate with bright acidity and a saline mineral finish. It is a perfect match with pan-fried scallops with parsnip purée & pancetta crumbs.

Is This an ‘I Was There’ Moment? The Wines of Alheit

25 November 2018 by Richard

20121005_cartology_001_2016

Is this an ‘I was there’ wine moment? I think so. I was there. I bought the first ever vintage of Alheit Cartology, the 2011. It was revolutionary to me at the time – it had such clarity; a wine with a truly authentic Cape identity. Back then, just 22 barrels were produced of this profound blend of mostly Chenin Blanc with a touch of Semillon. Thankfully, due to a diligent search for special, old vineyards around the Cape, there is a bit more of the Cartology bottling to go around these days! Today, Chris and Suzaan Alheit make a range of single vineyard white wines in addition to Cartology, wines which are already sought-after but threaten with each successive vintage to cross the line into unobtainable… It will no doubt comfort me – a little – to know ‘I was there’ at the beginning when I can no longer find any bottles for my own cellar!

Suzaan Chris

Chris and Suzaan Alheit

Alheit’s focus remains strongly on dry-farmed heritage vineyards, mostly white grapes, but they are getting very excited about new sites they have found, planting vines in wonderful, often remote, places. Consequently, they have released additional single vineyard wines this year, which are from extreme locations or just produce exceptional fruit. We have secured a minuscule allocation (6 bottles per wine) of some of these, including your last chance ever to get your hands on a bottle of Radio Lazarus:

radio_lazarus_2017 horizThis remarkable Chenin Blanc was originally a single vineyard wine, but since the 2015 vintage comes from two plots planted in 1971 and 1978. Sadly, due to an extremely dry vintage in 2018 these already low-yielding vineyards are no longer viable for wine production (these vineyards only produced 50 litres of wine between them in 2018!) making 2017 the last vintage of Radio Lazarus to be released.

huilkrans_2017 horizThe new Huilkrans bottling (named after a cliff near the vineyard that ‘weeps’ when it rains) is from a vineyard that the Alheits have worked with for some time but has finally matured enough to stand on its own. A richer, deeper style than some in the portfolio due in part to deep red sand soil over a base of red clay, this nonetheless shows great saline minerality and appetising spice notes.

la_colline_vineyard_2017 horizThe La Colline Semillon is from a vineyard planted in 1936 containing a mixture of three Semillon clones: Semillon Blanc, Gris, and Rose. The result is a ripe, citrussy style that retains great freshness and meshes beautifully with some well-judged oak. More delicately textured than the Chenins but no less intense.

So, if you love truly great wines with a sense of place and authenticity, and you’d also like a chance to say ‘I was there’ – I suggest you pick a bottle or two before I do!

Bel Air-Marquis d’Aligre

6 October 2018 by Richard

As you probably know if you’re reading this, we’re always on the look out for Good Wine, Real People, and Great Stories to bring to our shelves. Some regions are always easier than others in this regard, and while no wine lover would deny the fact that some of the finest wines in the world hail from Bordeaux, many of these mainly tell a story of huge swathes of vineyard all blended and homogenised into an – often delicious – anonymised whole.

Bel Air-Marquis d’Aligre is different.

Bel Air Marquis

This is a chateau you may not have heard of before, but it could be the most important discovery you will ever make in Bordeaux.  From a bygone era, the owner, Monsieur Boyer’s energy belies his 85 years.  Remarkably, he is currently embarking on his 69th vintage at this property and his methods have remained essentially unchanged over this whole period.

He owns 50 hectares in Margaux which implies he is a large scale producer.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  One parcel remains fallow, as he pulled the vines after the 1956 frost and never got round to replanting them! In fact, he farms less than 15 hectares, highly unusual in a region obsessed with squeezing every last drop of wine out of the vineyards. Other parcels are full of ancient gnarly vines that are over 100 years old – and some may be much older.  These must be some of the oldest vines, not just in Bordeaux, but in the whole country. Unusually too, they grow on their own roots. Yields from these centenarians must be extraordinarily low, no doubt contributing to the wonderful complexity of the wines made at this property.  There is a refreshing aesthetic to these vineyards and they are ill-fitting, surrounded by the neatly manicured rows of vines more commonly found in the Bordeaux establishment.

Put politely, the winery is showing its age; lots of large cement vats, a few very old wooden barrels and some bats, who may well have made their home here for as long as the proprietor!  He treats the current state of Bordeaux with disdain and chooses not to enter the en-primeur market, instead opting to store the wine in his cellar until they are ready to drink.  Those who like their claret with bold oaky flavours should steer clear.  His wines are profound, unadulterated (no oak is used for maturation these days), remarkably pure and sappy in style, which urge you to take another sip.  It is an incredible back story and it all sounds like a massive time warp to me but one I have happily contorted myself into.

Luckily, we have a small allocation of the 2000, a vintage which produced ripe flavours and lush, velvety wines.  Whilst the Bel Air Marquis d’Aligre reflects the warm vintage conditions with good concentration and polish it also retains a beautiful purity, freshness and a gentle grip.  All these gradually open up into something with a timeless class that shares more in common with an elegant Burgundy than most Bordeaux.

South African Wine Bar Takeover in Chiswick and Kew

25 September 2018 by Alex

October sees some of South Africa’s greatest young winemaking stars descend on London for some very special tastings. Any of you who attended our tastings last year will know that we always have an absolute blast at these events. These easy-going, charismatic, irreverent winemakers are some of the most fun guests we have all year, but possibly more importantly they make fantastic wines of arresting intensity, complexity, balance, and authenticity. This is an amazing opportunity to meet these winemakers who have already gone from ‘up-and-coming’ to legitimate stars and who will be talked about as true legends in years to come. Our gorgeous wine bars in Chiswick and Kew will be lovingly invaded by five of these stars for one night only on Thursday the 4th of October from 6pm.

Joining us in Kew will be Duncan Savage of Savage Wines, Craig Wessels of Restless River, and David Cope of Alphabetical Wines:

Duncan SavageDuncan Savage made quite a name for himself as the winemaker at Cape Point Vineyards before establishing his own label in 2011. These wines instantly won critical acclaim and a cult following – produced in very small quantities, they are always highly sought after. He acquired his own winery in time to make the 2017 vintage and this has given him both more control over how the wines are made and the space to make more wine – both extremely positive developments for Duncan’s legions of fans! This, his first visit to us here at The Good Wine Shop is a real treat.

“I was a bit blown away by this range from Duncan. He is achieving his dream of zoning in on choice parcels of old vine from areas such as Piekenierskloof and Malgas… to create some thrilling, quite cerebral but delicious wines.” Neal Martin, Vinous Media, August 2017.

Craig AnneCraig Wessels is the self-taught winemaker at Restless River wines an estate that continues to go from strength to strength with each new vintage. The Hemel-en-Aarde Valley is a wonderful if under-exploited region and Craig’s world class Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon illustrate this perfectly. Only a few thousand bottles are produced each year at this property and they are becoming increasingly hard to find. Craig and his wife Anne (pictured) really brought a festive atmosphere with them last year when they visited Chiswick so we’re really looking forward to seeing him here in Kew.

David CopeDavid Cope is the owner and proprietor of Publik Wine Bar in Cape Town, a contributor to WineMag.co.za, as well as an avid promoter of unusual and interesting wines. In recent years he has turned his hand at winemaking with various ranges of wines using grapes sourced for all over the Cape. When they first hit the shelves this time last year, David’s Alphabetical Red and White were a big hit with all of our customers here for their incredible value and fun drinkability. We’re really looking forward to meeting David and seeing what he has up his sleeve next!

In Chiswick, we look forward to welcoming Peiter Walser of BLANK bottle and Alex Starey of Keermont Vineyards:

 

Peiter CroppedIn his BLANKbottle winery in Somerset West, Pieter Walser makes an ever-changing roster of wines sourced from various growers throughout South Africa. Many wines are one-offs, made thanks to the availability of a singular, special parcel of fruit – he even made us a special cuvee of our own last year! Pieter designs all of his packaging himself to reflect his iconoclastic winemaking approach:

“When I started BLANKbottle, my goal was to create an honest wine brand that had no limitations when it came to style, vintage, area or cultivars in order to break down any preconceived expectations. Having no indication of cultivar on the bottle makes this possible. Not only does it demand complete honesty when it comes to quality, but it allows me the opportunity to introduce once-off limited runs of interesting wines. Its flexibility turned out to be BLANKbottle’s edge. Something for someone with an open mind and an adventurous heart”

Alex StareySince the redevelopment of the farm in 2005, Alex Starey has enjoyed the responsibility of making sure that the vineyards deliver the highest-quality fruit to create the best possible wines. Alex studied Viticulture and Oenology at Stellenbosch University and graduated in 2002. He has travelled and worked in wine regions including Maipo Valley, Chile; Penedes and Priorat, Spain; St-Emillion and Cote Rotie, France.

“Winemaker and surf-addict Alex Starey is certainly talented and has taken the estate to new heights in recent years… these wines come highly recommended” – Neal Martin, Vinous Media, August 2017.

To secure your place at either (or both!) of this year’s wine bar takeovers, tickets can be purchased online here. Tickets cost £25 each and entitle the holder to one full glass of wine, a taste of at least six wines from the producers, some South African grazing plates to nibble on, and a chance to wine a signed magnum of wine in our prize draw! Tickets for this event are limited and are allocated on a first come, first served basis so act quickly to avoid disappointment.

We look forward to seeing you on the night!

Producer Profile: Markus Huber

14 August 2018 by Alex

Markus HuberThe current incumbent at Huber wines in Austria, Markus Huber, is the family winery’s 10th generation head. Many of the estate’s vineyards are not a lot bigger than an average sized garden and dotted around the Traisental valley in the north-east of Austria. As a keen gardener myself, I can relate to the love and devotion given by the family to these pristine vineyard terraces.

Meteorology alert: Pannonian influences are paired with cool Alpine air and the nearby River Danube has a temperature-moderating effect. In a plain-speaking weather world this means they are blessed with warm days and cool nights, so the grapes develop good varietal flavour whilst retaining a purity and freshness. Additionally, the limestone mix soils ground the wine by providing clarity and spine.

Riesling-Engelsberg-2013

 

 

 

One of Huber’s all-round best value wines is the Riesling Engelsberg (£19.50/£18.50). The Engelsberg vineyard is a high, east-facing, chalky terrace that is just right for Riesling vines. The 2017 has 4 hours of skin contact, is fermented in stainless steel and kept on the lees for 4 months. The result is a vibrant wine of perfectly ripe peachiness, yet brilliant brightness. Try it with a salmon-en-croute, lobster ceviche or a Thai green curry.

zweigelt_rose-300x1000

 

 

 

The Huber rosé (£15.00/£13.50) is made from Zweigelt grapes, which, did you know, is the most widely planted black grape variety in Austria. It is a newly created cross-bred variety and its recent, rapid growth in plantings means it is very rare to come across a Zweigelt made from such old vines; some used in this wine are up to 50 years old! It has 2 hours skin contact, is fermented in stainless steel and kept on the lees for 3 months. A fitting barbeque rosé that is dry with delicate, freshly-picked, summer red berry sapidity.

So make sure you try a bottle of these great value Austrian gems before Summer is over!

DuMol: Terroir Wines from Russian River and Beyond

12 March 2018 by Alex

DuMOL boxz

In less than ten days time on Wednesday, March 21st we are hosting a very special wine bar takeover in Kew with DuMOL, one of California’s leading estates. This is an amazing opportunity for an audience with Scottish-born Andy Smith: viticulturist, winemaker, and partner at DuMOL.

Specialising in cool climate vineyards of California’s coastal regions, DuMOL were early pioneers of the now famous Russian River Valley over 20 years ago and now have a total of two dozen very special parcels of vines in the best cool climate vineyards in the region. Some fruit is bought from other growers who work closely with Andy to ensure the fruit meets his high standards, but DuMol also possess and farm an increasing number of their own parcels. The aim is to create terroir wines that show a ‘blend of Californian depth and European clarity’ with a particular focus on Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Viognier, and Syrah. Andy is keen to ensure that ‘each bottling is built in the vineyard’ and shows a sense of place that is sometimes lost in Californian wines.

Andy – who once represented Scotland in swimming at the Commonwealth games – is a passionate, dedicated, and uncompromising winemaker. He will be in-store throughout the evening to share his insights on these profound and exciting wines.  Andy will chat to guests throughout the evening, but will also give a brief presentation to the whole room around 7:30pm.

DuMol's Andy Smtih

DuMol’s Andy Smtih

Tickets for the evening are £25 per person (available here) and will include a full glass of DuMol’s Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2014 or Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2014 upon arrival, followed by a tasting of 4 top wines from the DuMol range chosen specifically by Andy Smith for the evening. We will also waive corkage fees on all DuMol bottles ordered to drink on the evening.

In addition to all the wines being opened, we have managed to get our hands on a rare bottle from the DuMOL cellars to give away as a special prize on the evening. All guests in attendance will be entered to win an Autographed Magnum of DuMol’s Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2008 (RSP £140/bottle) to take home that night!

For those of you that can’t make it on the night, the full range of DuMol wines can be viewed online here.

New Arrivals!

6 March 2018 by Alex

The early part of the year is always a time for fresh starts and new approaches, and we at The Good Wine Shop are no exception. Don’t worry though, we won’t be throwing the baby out with the bath water and getting rid of all your old favourites, we will mostly just be adding great new wines that deserve everyone’s attention! With that in mind we thought now would be a good time to bring your attention to a selection of new bottles that have just hit the shelves. Click the wine name to view.

Petit Sios, Costers del Segre, Spain, 2016

petit sios landscape

 

 

 

This white from the Costers del Segre region in Catalunya is based on 60% Viognier with Chardonnay and Muscat. Although made from full bodied and aromatic grapes, this is surprisingly crisp and shows good minerality. The fruit here is mostly white peach and apricot with some tropical nuances.

Cailloux du Paradis Quartz, Loire Valley, France, 2015

Quartz Landscape

 

 

 

An intensely mineral Sauvignon Blanc, with stoney, flinty flavours that make it worthy of its name. Although the polar opposite style to a stereotypical ‘New World’ Sauvignon, there is still plenty of zesty lemon and grapefruit flavour here. In many ways better than a lot of Sancerres or Pouilly-Fumes at this price.

Pax ‘Buddha’s Dharma’ Chenin Blanc, Mendocino County, USA, 2015

Pax BUddha Landscape

 

 

 

Made from vines over 70 years of age, this is a rich, dense, creamy Chenin Blanc with a mouth-coating texture. Notes of ripe apricot, white flowers and honey abound on the nose. Great with any creamy fish or chicken dish.

Chanin Wine Co, Bien Nacido Vineyard Chardonnay, Santa Maria Valley, California, USA, 2015

Chanin_Bien_NacidoChard Landscape

 

 

 

The Chanin Wine Co. crafts wines from various vineyards in Santa Barbara county that are intended to express the best characteristics of their individual site. The wines emphasise balance and complexity without excessive alcohol. The Bien Nacido Chardonnay is wonderfully nutty, with ripe lemon fruit and salty mineral touches. Aged in oak for 15 months but only 10% of this is new. Lots of Californian Chardonnays claim to be restrained and elegant, but this truly embodies these qualities in a seemingly effortless manner.

Jean Vesselle, Pur B3 Grand Cru, Brut Nature, Bouzy, Champagne, France, 2012

Jean Vesselle B3 Landscape

 

 

 

An unusual 100% Chardonnay wine from the Grand Cru village of Bouzy, which is best known for its Pinot Noir. This wine is a chance to see the quality of a pure Chardonnay Champagne grown on these prestigious soils. Rich and textured yet mineral.

Alfredo Maestro, Vina Almate, Tinto, Castilla Y Leon, Spain, 2016

almate Landscape

 

 

 

Alfredo Maestro is based in Ribera del Duero, and is passionate about finding and rehabilitating parcels of vines in the Castilla y Leon region too, one of which forms the basis for this great value red. Alfredo works organically, and with no additions in the winery except a minimum of sulphur at bottling. This is 100% Tempranillo with 80% whole clusters included, fermented with indigenous yeasts. The vineyards are located between 700 and 1000 metres above sea level, helping to give a lovely aromatic perfume to the wine alongside impressive concentration of flavour. A lot of wine for the money!

Stolpman Vineyards, La Cuadrilla, Ballard Canyon, USA, 2015

La Cuadrilla Landscape

 

 

 

Stolpman Vineyards’ La Cuadrilla stems from a novel and admirable concept: the vineyard workers tend a speicifc section of vines to form the basis of the cuvee. The result is then blended with some more fruit from the estate to ensure that production represents at least 10% of annual production. Stolpman then give all the profits from the wine to the vineyard workers directly. Not just a nice story, this wine is a delicious, spicy blend of 68% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 6% Petite Sirah, and 6% Sangiovese. Dense and structured, but ripe and drinkable.

Cailloux du Paradis Racines Rouge, Loire Valley, France, 2014

claude-courtois-racines-landscape

 

 

 

Winemaker Claude Courtois cultivates his small property in an obscure corner of the Loire valley. The red version of Racines is made from an undisclosed number of red varieties (Courtois is keen to emphasise the importance of viewing his wines as wholes rather than talking about the grape varieties contained within). Typically the majority of the wine is made from Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cot (the local name for Malbec). Very low intervention winemaking, with no added sulphur and everything done by hand. Perfumed and full of violet aromas on the nose, the palate has lots of crisp, crunchy ripe fruit along with a firm but subtle tannic structure.

Sato “Pisa Terrace” Pinot Noir, Central Otago, New Zealand, 2015

Sato Pinot

 

 

 

Brilliant ‘natural’ Pinot Noir from Central Otago in New Zealand, nothing is added to this wine than a tiny amount of sulphur when the wine is bottled. Yoshiaki and Kyoko Sato make only a tiny volume of wine in each vintage. Perfumed, pure fruit and delicious herbal nuances.

Tabarrini “Campo alla Cerqua” Sagrantino di Montefalco, Umbria, Italy, 2008

Tabarrini Campo Cerqua Landscape

 

 

 

The Campo alla Cerqua vineyard has loose, stony soils which – in contrast to the heavier clay of the Grimaldesco vineyard – give a wine of more elegance, minerality, and finesse. To enchance these characteristics the wine ages only in large oak barrels, mellowing the wine without imparting oaky flavours.
