Farm House Organic Red 2018

A Fireside Favourite - This rich, warming red pairs with cosy evenings alongside the fire.

A regal red blend of 57% Merlot / 43% Cabernet Sauvignon . It's been crafted using grapes grown organically at Spier farm in Stellenbosch. The natural yeast flora of the grapes completed the fermentation in a combination of open top and roller French oak barrels. Thereafter, the two cultivars were pressed and blended together and aged for 12 months.

"Making organic wines is in keeping with Spier's ethically, environmentally and socially conscious farming philosophy in which we harness the goodness of nature in ways that are kind to the earth." Johan Jordaan.

ORIGIN
Coastal region

TERROIR / SOIL
Mainly Escourt

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS
At Spier Home Farm, the differences in altitude, aspect, solar radiation and wind exposure result in significant mesoclimate differences over short distances. This, coupled with variations in soil (mainly Escourt), creates a terroir that ensures full and complex wines with unique character and style.

WINEMAKING:
The organically grown Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes used in this wine were hand harvested early in the morning in 8kg lug boxes. The natural yeast flora of the grapes completed the fermentation in a combination of open top and roller French oak barrels. Thereafter, the two cultivars were pressed and blended together and aged for 12 months. The best barrels were selected upon organoleptic evaluation. A low-intervention approach was used throughout the winemaking process. The wine was bottled on site and aged for a further 6 months before release.
