Signature Collection Pinotage

"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."


With its dark and juicy fruit and silky tannins, this easygoing and unpretentious red is excellent company no matter the night of the week. Although it plays nice with most red meats (sweet and sticky pulled pork anyone?!) we love it with bobotie and other Cape Malay-style curries. Room to spare? Enjoy a glass with roasted marshmallows too!

TASTING NOTE

Beautiful perfumed notes of black cherry, forest berries and subtle allspice lead to a smooth, rounded mid-palate with balanced acidity and a lingering, fruity aftertaste.

WINEMAKING

ORIGIN

Western Cape

TERROIR / SOIL

Decomposed granite and weathered sandstone

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS

The 20 - 22 year old vertical trellised vines receive supplementary irrigation where the clay subsoils are too structured and porous, to ensure optimal foliage and even ripening. These vineyards are planted up to 80 km from the coast, with geographical influence from mountains and the cold Atlantic coast.

WINEMAKING

Grapes were harvested at ±24°B, gently crushed and de-stemmed to stainless-steel tanks. The use of cultured and natural yeast helps to unlock the fragrant fruit profile of the grapes. After fermentation, 20% of the wine was matured in French-oak barrels for 8 to 10 months; the remainder matured in stainless-steel tanks with French-oak staves.
