Blankbottle Master of None 2021

This wine comes out of a request for a red wine to partner the Blankbottle Moment of Silence

Grape Varietals & Region: A red blend of SWARTLAND Grenache, WELLINGTON Grenache, BREEDEKLOOF Cinsaut, ELGIN Pinot Noir, SWARTLAND Chenin Blanc, SWARTLAND Fernao Pirez, STELLENBOSCH Chardonnay and STELLENBOSCH Pinotage.

Taste Profile: This wine is a madcap blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Pinot Noir and Pinotage, with 16% white grape varieties blended in too. It's a very juicy, very drinkable wine that has lots of strawberry juice, cherry, blackcurrant leaf, pomegranate and earthy notes. It's best served chilled. It's a fun little wine, not be taken too seriously.

Winemaking Process: The reds were picked at optimal ripeness and cooled overnight to 4 degrees celsius. The next morning the grapes were part destemmed and part taken as whole bunches to open top fermenters. Fermented spontaneously and left on the skins for 3 weeks. Pressed into older French oak barrels. 10 months in barrel, blended and bottled. The white were pressed as whole bunches with no additives. The juice underwent spontaneous fermentation in French oak. 10 months on the leese, blended and bottled.
