Spier Signature Chardonnay

"Spier Signature wines capture in a glass what Spier does best: making quality wines that are true to each grape variety’s unique flavour. Every time."


Slightly tart, whimsically tropical and ever-so creamy, this lively Chardonnay is sure to become a favourite. Perfectly matched with lemon-butter salmon, it’ll also add pizzazz to a roast chicken dinner. Otherwise, enjoy it on its lonesome (or with camembert and crackers) when it’s time to watch the tennis. 

TASTING NOTE
Lively grapefruit and lime on the nose with hints of apple, peach and pear. The palate is creamy with layered fruit, pleasant lingering acidity and minerality

ORIGIN
Western Cape

TERROIR / SOIL

Varying kinds of soil and subsoil.

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS:

Trellised vines between 14 and 22 years old yielded the grapes for this wine. They received supplementary drip irrigation and produced 10 to 14 tons per hectare.

WINEMAKING

Grapes were hand-harvested from selected vineyard blocks and then de-stemmed, slightly crushed and pressed at the cellar. The juice of the individual block selections (some kept separate and some blended) was temperature-control fermented in stainless-steel tanks with selected yeast strains. Only the best tanks were selected for the final preparation of the blend. Maturation occurred on the fine lees for 2 months prior to preparation for bottling. New French-oak barrels were used to ferment 5% of the wine to add complexity.
