Description

Stunning, all rounder there is nothing you can fault in this wine, maintaining all of it's style and swagger. Aromas of candied lemon, cooked apple and mango with a core of minerality. Soft and voluptuous, it has a lovely ripeness and a fleshy, creamy mouthfeel, which leads to a perfect tangy freshness giving some zip to its otherwise mellow feel.

Since 2007, the Moment of Silence has evolved into an area-specific white blend. The Chardonnay in the blend is still from Twyfeling and the Chenin now comes from a combination of very old vineyards from 4 different sites in the Bovlei. The Viognier is still from the original site we first picked in 2007, a small block on the foothills of Groenberg. All these varietals fermented spontaneously in the original OLD french oak barrels I started using in 2007. It was aged a year in barrel on the lees, blended and bottled.

BLANKBottle makes a range of wines changing from year to year depending on what critically-acclaimed winemaker Pieter H. Walser finds on his explorations through SA vineyards.

Walser's operation is unusual because he owns no vineyards and rarely makes the same wine twice. He only works with small batches, buying grapes from around 60 vineyards all over the Western Cape.

His policy is to say nothing about the grapes or the blend and he takes a casual approach to more than just the label, saying that the plan behind his winemaking is simply not to think too much about it.

Rather harsh . Wax cork cover nearly defeated the foil cutter! Normally tend to avoid bottles with ‘intriguing’ titles.
