Spier Creative Block 2 2020

Spier Creative Block wines are a South African take on traditional Rhône and Bordeaux-style blends. Our winemakers carefully select grapes from different vineyard blocks, combining and blending taste profiles to create wines that are much greater than the sum of their parts. The Spier Creative Block range of blends takes its name from a Spier Arts project proudly supporting South African artists.


This blend of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Sémillon turns heads wherever it appears. Lusciously textured tropical, fynbos and asparagus flavours are overlaid upon a canvas of mouthwatering minerality. Coveted by connoisseurs and critics alike, accolades for the 2019 vintage of this Sauvignon Blanc-dominated white blend include a four-star rating from Platter’s Wine Guide 2020 and 92 points from British Master of Wine Tim Atkin.

TASTING NOTE

Tropical notes of gooseberry, lime and white peach. Subtle hints of fynbos and a touch of white asparagus deliver depth. The palate is young and leads to a long and structured mineral finish.

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS
Oakleaf, Clovelly and Glenrosa soils approximately 16 km from the cool Atlantic Ocean.

WINEMAKING
Grapes were hand-harvested early in the morning in 10kg lug boxes and pre-cooled before hand-sorting, destemming and crushing. Skin contact was limited to six hours and the free-run juice drained off to settle overnight before inoculation with a selected yeast strain. The fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperatures between 12° and 14°C. A small portion of the Sémillon fermented in French oak barrels to add complexity to the wine. The wine matured for six months on the lees before bottling.
