BLANKbottle 3rd Round 2014
This product is currently sold out.
Blimey - what a blend! Sangiovese from the Stellenbosch, blended with Swartland Carignan and Mouvedre, and a wee bit of Pinot, Cinsault and Syrah. All components spend 18 months in old french oak together. Named 3rd Round, as this is winemaker Pieter's third round working with Woolworths in South Africa in their very trendy craft wine section which is quite the privilege to be included. (And yes, Woolworths still thrives in certain parts of the world! Probably because they sell cool wines like this.) Super crunchy and bright with excellent freshness on the fruit. Hints of chocolate and eucalyptus. Elegant and hugely enjoyable. This was the wine that alerted us to the talents of Pieter H Walser. Anyone who can make a blend as incredible as this is a genius. It's totally unique and probably in our top 5 wines in the entire shop. It's that good!
