Blankbottle Familiemoord, 2015

In Stock Now!

"Another wonderfully imaginative label from Pieter Walser (only the "family murder" was true), this blend of Grenache with Cinsault and Pinot Noir is beautifully restrained and complex, like a Côtes du Rhône meets red Burgundy cuvée. Red fruits, sappy tannins and a mineral frisson." 94pts, Tim Atkin MW Drink: 2016-21

It’s a long story…Pieter says it’s a "wine dedicated to the interesting super ultimate misunderstanding of the South African Police thinking I killed my son...".  (Familiemoord in Afrikaans = family murder. The background to this is that Pieter was mischievously covering his son with spadefuls of dirt in his back garden one day - and was reported by a neighbour to the police for infanticide. The heavies came round and Pieter had to do some explaining. The press cutting is reproduced on the label!).

From 59% Swartland Grenache, 22% Darling Cinsaut and 19% Elgin Pinot Noir, this tastes like a Cape Châtauneuf-du-Pape. Extravagant Grenache aromas of cooked strawberries, and then a voluptuous but aromatic mouthful. Now-2020
