The Art of Gifting | Creative Block 5 #2

The art of gifting lies in surprise, delight and good wine, of course. Take a creative approach to gifting those you love with one-of-a-kind, local art piece from our Spier Arts Project. The Creative Block 5 Art of Gifting series pairs a red-wine lover's Creative Block 5 with an art piece composed with a striking scarlet colour palette.

About the project

The Creative Art Project invites artists to work on blank blocks that are workshopped with our curator, Tamlin Blake, to hone creative skills. The selected works are then purchased by Spier Arts Trust.

Find the information about the artist at the back of your art piece.

About the Wine

Like a painter mixes colours to create their composition, Creative Block 5 is blended from a rich aromatic palette of five distinct varietals to compose an elegant blend. 

A true symphony of a wine, with Bordeaux varietals led by Cabernet Sauvignon achieving a perfect, rousing harmony. If you ever need a standout performance from a red come dinnertime, then this is your blend.

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS
The 2020 growing season saw a return to normal rainfall and climate conditions after the drought. Careful foliage management was done to protect the fruit from drying out, with a good balance between exposure to the sun and some over shadowing from the leaves. The 16 – 19-year-old vines are planted to a VSP system with supplementary drip irrigation.

WINEMAKING
Grapes were hand-harvested, pre-cooled, de-stemmed and individually sorted to remove unwanted berries. Fermentation took place in stainless- steel tanks for up to 21 days. Malolactic fermentation and maturation took place in 300L French oak barrels for 18 months (50% first fill; the balance second fill). Before blending, the wines were crafted individually to address the unique needs of each varietal so that each could reach its highest potential. Selective tasting from the barrels determined the composition of the blend. Expert blending has ensured harmony between the five varietals.
