Spier Signature Collection Merlot bottle

"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."


This Merlot’s juicy berries, minty hints and sleek tannins make it as at home around the braai as it is indoors by the fireplace. We love it with old school boerewors, potjies, a casserole or braise. Not hungry? Then sip it while you beat your better half at Scrabble.

TASTING NOTE

Aromas of ripe red and black berries, pomegranate and cherry, complemented by a subtle mint flavour. The medium-bodied palate offers bright acidity and freshness.

WINEMAKING

Johan Jordaan

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 optimal ripeness, de-stemmed and crushed 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 to complement the wine’s flavour profile and length.
