A Spier farm exclusive, the Ideology range provides a blank canvas of distinct varietals and blends that captures our winemaker’s most thought-provoking ideas in each bottle. Crafted from exceptional 29-year-old Cinsaut vines grown in the Voor-Paardeberg wine region near Paarl, this vintage brims with a perfumed nose of red cherries, raspberry and a hint of spice.
TASTING NOTE | DOWNLOAD TASTING NOTE The palate has a fresh and generous texture, with well-integrated tannins and a smooth finish. A gem of an idea is to pair this red with hot smoked salmon fillets, ratatouille, or tapas such as black olives and goat's milk cheese.

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS
The vineyard is located in the Voor-Paardeberg wine region, about 10km from Paarl.
The Cinsaut vines were planted in 1993, now 29 years old and delivered a yield of 10t/ha, in the hot and dry growing season before harvest.
The grapes where hand-picked in the earlier morning to capture freshness and acidity. The bunches were hand sorted and semi-carbonic maceration methods were used during, natural fermentation that took place in a stainless-steel tank. This technique lifts the fruit and creates intensity. After fermentation the grapes were pressed to 300L older French oak barrels, 3rd & 4th fill, and left to mature for 10 months.
