Unsurprisingly, Pieter Hauptfleisch Walser's BLANKbottle labels don't give much away. You won't find a grape variety or an indication of style mentioned - he does this in order that the wine is judged on its own merits. Sometimes he makes up to 30 different wines per year, many of which are one-offs and never repeated. But this eclectic approach has gained him a cult following and we're lucky to stock a handful of his wines. This is Pieter's answer to Cru Beaujolais, full to the brim with wild strawberry, cherry and earthy-smoky notes. Serve with a slight chill alongside cold cuts, terrines, hams and cheeses.
