Moment of Silence 2022

Blank Bottle

BLANKBottle produces a diverse range of wines that vary from year to year, crafted by renowned winemaker Pieter H. Walser during his explorations through South African vineyards. What sets Walser's operation apart is that he doesn't own any vineyards and seldom repeats the same wine. Instead, he sources grapes from approximately 60 vineyards scattered across the Western Cape. His unconventional approach extends beyond the label, as he intentionally avoids divulging information about the grapes or blend. Walser prefers to maintain a laid-back attitude towards winemaking, simply letting things flow without overthinking.

Changing subtly each year, but always based around two parcels of excellent Chenin Blanc, the Moment of Silence is a rich white that uses a mixture of old barrels, concrete eggs and amphorae for its fermentation and elevage. The 2022 no longer contains Chardonnay, instead adding a portion of organically farmed Grenache Blanc alongside the Chenin and Viognier.

This exceptional wine exhibits a well-rounded character, showcasing faultless style and flair. Its bouquet boasts aromas of candied lemon, cooked apple, and mango, supported by a mineral core. With its velvety texture and ripe, creamy mouthfeel, it exudes a delightful richness. However, it also possesses a lively freshness that adds zest to its otherwise mellow profile
