The Moment Of Silence by Blankbottle has aromas of candied lemon, cooked apple and mango with a core of minerality. Soft and voluptuous, it has a lovely ripeness and a fleshy, creamy mouthfeel, which leads to a perfect tangy freshness giving some zip to its otherwise mellow feel.
The ethos at Blankbottle is for the wine to do the talking, hence the lack of informaiton on either back or front label and no moention of the grapes used to make the wine. The Moment of Silence has come to be Blankbottles most important wine in terms of production and they now produce 10,000 bottles per year. The 2021 vintage is comprised of Chenin Blanc from two organically farmed vineyards along with Grenache Blanc and Viognier, all from within the Wellington region. Each parcel of grapes bring their own character and are fermented in either large old oak barrels, Amphora or concrete egg depending on the parcel. There is a little bit of skin contact and also lees ageing to add texture and complexity.
