Blankbottle, Moment of Silence, Wellington, 2020

Moment of Silence (or MoS for short) is always the best value wine in Pieter Walser's eclectic zoo of mad and bad blends. Chenin Blanc from four different sites, plus Grenache Blanc and Viognier, barrel-fermented and aged on the lees for a year.

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
