The Spaniard 2007 sold out in November 2010 and proved to be BLANKbottle’s most popular wine thus far. After many requests for a repeat Spaniard, I’m happy to be able to finally release a worthy successor – The BIG Spaniard 2009. A BIG wine for a BIG winter to come!
The life cycle of a BLANKbottle wine normally goes as follows: If a wine is well received, I repeat the wine for a few vintages until I am satisfied with the quality. The wine will then graduate from the BLANKbottle range and the batch name will become the brand (like in the case of the Moment of Silence). I then endeavour to repeat the wine every year.
This is the last year you’ll be able to buy The Spaniard under the BLANKbottle range. The BIG SPANIARD 2009 (as the name implies, a slightly bigger version of The Spaniard 2007) is an awesome wine. As with The Spaniard 2007, The BIG Spaniard 2009 is a blend of Mourvedre, Carignan, Grenache and Cinsaut.  The Spaniard 2007 was predominantly Mourvedre but the BIG Spaniard 2009 is driven by Carignan which gives it it’s colour and perfume. The Mourvedre adds oemph and the Cinsaut and Grenache, elegance.
It’s available now on my website or straight from me at R85 a bottle. Personally I think the wine is worth R140 a bottle and next year it will be priced accordingly.
