Ideology /ˌʌɪdɪˈɒlədʒi/
noun: Ideas + Oenology = Ideology

A Spier farm exclusive, the Ideology range provides a blank canvas of distinct varietals and blends that captures our winemaker’s most thought-provoking ideas in each bottle. This semi-sweet Riesling is wonderfully thirst-quenching, demanding another sip.

This semi-sweet Riesling is wonderfully thirst-quenching, demanding another sip. The flavours are rich and complex, with ripe peach and citrus persisting alongside lifting floral notes. Infinitely food-friendly and fresh, it’s a perfect match for rich, creamy cheeses or spicy curries. Rain or shine, Riesling is always a good idea.

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS

Trellised vines planted North-West and only 10km from the ocean. The cooling effect of the sea breezes in summer on the vineyards takes the edge off the heat, giving the berries a longer ripening period.

WINEMAKING

These grapes were machine harvested and processed before sunrise to preserve the grape characteristics. Skin contact was limited to four hours and the free run juice drained off to settle overnight before inoculation with a special yeast strain. Fermentation took place in a stainless-steel tank at 14°C. The wine matured for eleven months on the lees in the tank.

TASTING NOTE

The flavours are rich and complex, with ripe peach and citrus persisting alongside lifting floral notes.
