No, the name is not taken from the lyrics from an upcoming 'Pieter Walser and the BLANKbottle winery' soundtrack. And neither is it to do with Pieter's imminent retirement. The name is a reference to the beautiful old Cinsault vineyard where much of the fruit that goes in to this wine is from. This wine was made for the first time in the vineyards 65th year after years of it's fruit going to one of the larger local wineries. Having been formally "retired" from service in its 63rd year, Pieter took his chance and snuck in. Several years careful nursing and recuperation farming, and here it is - Retirement@65. A Cinsault driven blend from Darling in the Western Cape. Very hands off winemaking - with small amounts of sulphur added just before bottling and a gentle 12% alcohol. Pieter, you're on to a winner.

If you like freshness, florals, prettiness and perfume in your wines, then look no further. Perfect for grilled meats.
