I am so delighted to be able to introduce to you the Blankbottle range from the amazing and very thoughtful winemaker Pieter Walser, from South Africa.

The wines of BlankBottle are not bound to a specific wine area or wine style. Generally they're from many different vineyards, scattered across the Western Cape, different regions, micro-climates, soil types, and ultimately leads to a vast array of different wine styles. One look at his website and you will understand! These wines are driven by quality, adventure, excitement and mystery, and at the centre of it all, are the guys in the vineyards, viticulturists, winemakers, family, friends and of course, BlankBottle fans.

Confessions of a White Glove Chaser is a great blend of Cabernet franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot all from the Helderberg in Stellenbosch. It's a story of very creative and budget-friendly wine-making that goes back to 2013 when Pieter Walser was a little strapped for cash and driving around the Cape looking for grapes, and ultimately finding the now infamous white gloved pickers. Check out his website for the story, its hugely compelling.

Tasting Note:
It's a remarkable Bordeaux blend with lots of brambly fruit, super-fine tannins, and a long and precise finish. It's graceful yet with terrific concentration, velvety with a savoury, earthy touch making it very complex. 

This certainly punches above it's weight and represents a lovely Bordeaux blend from the Cape. Pieter’s Bordeaux blends get better and better although perhaps its the white gloves that are getting better, and Pieter's ability to chase them around the cape is becoming more efficient..? Either way, drink it with friends worthy of the story!

This is a Dry, Medium+ bodied wine with High acidity and Medium tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with High alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
