Spier ends 2021 on a high note with Platter's Wine Guide

The 2022 Platter’s South African Wine Guide has awarded Spier wines with five 5-star, seven 4.5 star and nine 4-star ratings. To top off this show stopping set of results, Spier was also crowned with the Editor’s Award - Top Winery of the Year, while our 5-star winning Frans K. Smit CWG Auction Selection 2018 brought home Bordeaux Blend of the Year! A 5-Star rating went to the following selection of wines:

Frans K. Smit CWG Auction Selection 2018 (96 points and Bordeaux Blend) 
Frans K. Smit Red 2017 (96 points)
Frans K. Smit White 2019 (96 points)
21 Gables Chenin Blanc 2020 (96 points)
Cap Classique R.D Brut 2013 (95 points)

This diverse range of styles, from Cap Classique and a single variety Chenin to three high-end blends is a testament to Cellar Master Johan Jordaan and the Spier winemaking team’s remarkable skill in both the vineyard and cellar. In addition, the following eight wines received an impressive 4.5 rating:

21 Gables Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 (94 points)

21 Gables Pinotage 2018 (93 points)
21 Gables Sauvignon Blanc 2021 (94 points)

Nine of the Spier wines received a 4-star rating, which is no small feat! Most notably, both the Signature Sauvignon Blanc 2021 and Signature Series Merlot 2019 were recognized. As everyday wines, this set of results once again confirms the high level of quality that is inherent across all Spier ranges.
