"A mix of grapes that will make your head spin, this is a new addition to Pieter Walser's eccentric portfolio. This Rhone style blend is weighty with ripe white fruit and honey notes. The textured palate is balanced, with fruit richness and acidity and a nice grip on the finish". Weekday Wines, Christelle Guibert, Decanter April 2017.
This is one of Pieter's two "Brain" wines. Basically he wired himself up to electrodes while he was tasting a number of different white blends. Orbitofrontal Cortex was, as Pieter put it, " the best white blend from my cellar according to my conscious mind, which is...named after the scientific name for the part of your brain where conscious decisions are made". (This is as opposed to Limbic, the blend which generated the most intense but subconscious brain activity). It's a blend of Piekenierskloof Grenache blanc, Swartland Clairette Blanche, Swartland Fernão Pires, Elgin Semillon and Voor Paardeberg Verdelho.Like all Pieter's best whites, this is concentrated and honeyed, with nuances of pears and fat nuts. Clean acid cut. Intense and lasting. Now-2020
