Blankbottle 2019 Little WilliamIn Fine Spirits
It was the vision of Marguerite Mavros Macdonald to plant vines in the Witzenberg mountains on her husband, Dugald’s family farm. I got involved in 2015 and this wine has become my favorite expression of South African Shiraz. In South Africa we have the luxury of mountains. These mountains separate desert from coastal areas and create valleys and different exposures - enabling grape growers the opportunity to grow a wide range of varietals in a very small area. This wine is a great example of what Shiraz at 750m above sea level can do.
