2018 ULTRA, Blank Bottle, Swartland

Just 300 bottles of this smashing Chenin. Notes of beeswax, orange peel and fresh apples on the nose, with a wonderful, grippy, saline palate. Plenty of finesse, too, and a very long, ample yet focussed finish. A brilliant Chenin, one from the top drawer.

2018 ULTRA, Blank Bottle, Swartland
Blank Bottle

Pieter Walser conceived Blank Bottle as “an honest wine brand that had no limitations”. Anything is possible here: style of wine, region, and even grape varieties. In any given vintage, he might produce more than 40 individual cuvées, and he estimates that at any moment 50% of his output is a single bottling, never to be recreated. In 2017, he harvested 100 tonnes of grapes from 60 vineyards, spanning 35 varieties. Despite this breadth, his wines are beautifully considered and focused: some of the most exciting we try each year.
