BLANKBottle Familiemoord 2013
By Christian Eedes, 10 March 2015
W.O. Swartland. The name refers to an incident where winemaker Pieter Walser was suspected of killing his son – during the construction of a sandpit, father buried offspring for fun but neighbours assumed the worse.
100% Grenache. Red fruit, spice, potpourri and dried herbs. Pure and fresh with lovely tannin structure. Unadorned but really well balanced – provides great drinking pleasure. Sold out from the producer.
BLANKbottle winemaker Pieter Walser designs his own labels and was winner of the Grand Prix at the inaugural Wine Label Design Awards.
