2021 La Sarriette Pinot Blanc
New juice from the legendary Basket Range wildman Anton Van Klopper. Pinot Blanc from Surmann’s vineyard in Totness, whole-bunch pressed with only the free run fraction going ahead and fermenting in a 2000L foudre, before some aging on lees. No additions, as always. This wine is lean, savoury, tight, mineral and austere at first, before the true Pinot Blanc personality explodes with mouth fireworks, progressing through a velour texture with honeysuckle and wild lavender. Be quick.
