Description
Pieter Walser:
"This is the release of Sigh of Relief , mostly Cabernet Franc with bits of Malbec and Cab Sauvignoin - all from the Helderberg. In October 2012, a very well-known viticulturist and winemaker was walking through his little Merlot vineyard on the upper high slopes of the Helderberg (past Cordoba farm, to the very end of the road…), when he noticed something very strange. Halfway to the top of the vineyard, at a specific point, the growth points of the vine-shoots, in the morning sunlight, showed an abrupt change in colour - from green to bronze. And there’s only one varietal that does that. And it’s NOT Merlot…

Now, as we all know, Merlot is readily available whereas Cabernet Franc is far more exotic, funky and hard to find, especially on such super terroir! So, I can just imagine the disgust of that unique piece of Cabernet Franc each time someone referred to him/her as Merlot! And at the same time the pure emotional  “Sigh of Relief” the vineyard gave when, on that specific day, someone finally discovered its true roots!

As a result of this discovery, that farmer, at that point in time, had no need for Cabernet Franc and I, on the other hand, was as always open for a great story. So the wine: mainly Stellenbosch Cabernet Franc, with a bit of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon."

Describe BLANKbottle in one sentence: Clothes maketh not the man - judge the wines purely on taste (mmm… well actually you have no choice - there's no cultivar on the label) When and how did BLANKbottle start? In 2004, a lady came to Pieter Walsers house to buy wine. She asked for anything but Shiraz. "I don't drink Shiraz", were her exact words. He poured her a glass of wine. She loved it and bought 3 cases. It was a straight Shiraz. It's a fact - we do judge the book by its cover. It was this incident, 7 years of studying, working in France & California and 4 harvest seasons in SA that gave birth to BLANKbottle. The plan ahead? When Pieter Walser started BLANKbottle, the 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 Pieter the opportunity to introduce once-off limited runs of interesting wines. Its flexibility turned out to be BLANKbottle's edge. A brand for someone with an open mind and an adventurous heart.
