BLANKbottle Confessions of a White Glove Chaser 2013

In search of perfection.
In search of perfection.

W.O. Stellenbosch. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Two and a half months of post-ferment maceration. Matured for 15 months in old oak. The name? Winemaker Pieter Walser is impressed with the white-glove approach to excellence which many Stellenbosch wineries display and this wine is an attempt to emulate them.

Red and black berries – just about manages to stay on the right side of over-ripe. Fruit-driven with nice acidity and relatively soft tannins. Fun to drink. Price: R155 a bottle.

Score: 87/100.

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