RETIREMENT AT 65
By The BLANKBottle Winery
RED | PLAYFUL
Coming from a vineyard block that started work at the same age we’d like to be retiring, this lively, lovely wine is anything but over the hill!
WHAT WE TASTE
Pretty perfume, raspberry leaves, crunchy cassis
So much of our approach to wine has been inspired by Pieter Walser and his BLANKbottle wines – where the bottles typically don’t show the varietal to avoid any preconceived ideas about what people think they like and don’t like when it comes to wines. “You can’t judge it by the label; it takes drinking a whole bottle to get to know the wine.” He also designs those labels.
Grape: Cinsault, Syrah
Style: Playful with a bit of backbone
