Tasting Notes

Named after the sleepy little town of Baardskeerdersbos where the grapes are sourced and where the B-Bos spider creeps into your bedroom at night to steal your beard .... This incarnation of the B-Bos is 100% Semillon, from the most southern point in Africa.

More Info

The tale behind the name BLANKbottle is that when Pieter was starting out, he made a small parcel of Shiraz and was left with a few unlabelled cases. One day, a woman wanted to buy a wine – “Anything but Shiraz,” she told him. Pieter shrugged and sold her the unlabelled Shiraz, neglecting to mention the variety. A few weeks later she returned demanding more, saying it was the best thing she’d ever drunk. For Pieter, it was a lesson on the gap between what people think they like (or dislike) and what they actually like (or dislike). After that, he decided not to list the varieties on his labels. Every one of Pieter’s wines is a story, rather than a grape variety, and it’s the juice inside the bottle which reveals that story. 

FROM THE PRESS

“Smoke and fennel seed and caraway and nettle. Strikingly different. Another wine that demands your full attention. Norah Jones in a glass. Saxophony. Sage and olive oil and crushed molle leaves. Fascinating complexity. Snake charmer of a wine. 17”
Tamyln Currin, JancisRobinson.com
