Blankbottle Wine – a Summerwood favourite
Moment of Silence 2009 (now officially sold out thanks to my first ever export order leaving Cape Town harbour this week). I am pre-releasing the newly bottled and labelled Moment of Silence 2010 . If you order 12 of the new Moment of Silence 2010 (R53 per bottle) before this coming Saturday (21 May), you only have to pay me for 11 bottles.
Although similarly styled to the 2009 vintage, the 2010 is slightly more Chenin driven. I made use of a different block of Chenin with a very interesting history, which I will tell you more about later.
At this stage the wine has more pure fruit than the 2009 vintage. Older barrels were used and the wine was fermented and aged for a year in barrel. The wood is so subtle, it’s hardly recognizable. It just adds a bit of oemph. The wine was bottled a month ago, so I’m anticipating many changes to the wine in the months to come. The Chenin will become integrated and the Chardonnay and Viognier will be making their contribution in due time.
To make use of this pre-release offer, place your order by replying to this email with your delivery details and I will send a final quote. The price is R53 a bottle (valid until close of business Friday 20 May 2011). At the moment, you will not be able to buy this wine on my website as it is not officially released yet.
Once again, thank you for your support!
