BLANKBottle Im Hinterhofkabuff 2013

Germanic.

Germanic.

W.O. Elgin. Name meaning “backyard shack” and a reference to winemaker Pieter Walser’s modest office. Lime, peach, a little spice and a hint of petrol on the nose. Intensely flavoured on the palate – concentrated fruit and zingy acidity. Quite bold for a Riesling – 14% alcohol by volume and the fact that it was fermented in old, large-format oak definitely contributes to its presence. Price: R115 a bottle.

Score: 89/100.

BLANKbottle winemaker Pieter Walser designs his own labels and was winner of the Grand Prix at the inaugural Wine Label Design Awards.
