South Africa’s New Wave Winemaker ripping up every rule book going. In order to understand the philosophy behind the winery there is the story about Pieter Walser’s first customer. A woman who came to his office 12 years ago and said that she wanted to buy some wine and she liked everything apart from Shiraz. She tasted some wine, loved it and bought three cases. It was Shiraz. Winemaker, Pieter Walser, who makes over 40 different wines a year, mainly just 1 to 3 barrels of each says, “I want nothing on my labels about the grape variety.”
