2020 Aasvoël, Blank Bottle, Stellenbosch

Aasvoel is Verdelho, from a single plot in Stellenbosch, that Pieter’s always desperate to get his hands on. So much so, that he feels like a vulture - Aasvoel in Afrikaans - waiting to pick over the vineyard. It's a textured, mouth filling white, but with loads of focussed energy.

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.
