TEST - Signature Collection Sauvignon Blanc

"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."






Provence style, dry rosé blend with a light spritz. Our canned rosé is just 11% ABV, making it the perfect summer wine. We add a little spritz to our wines so they taste just as refreshing as the day we made it. We love our rosé in can because we can take it along on Summer adventures from the beach to the lake to a pop-up warehouse dance party.

ORIGIN
: Western Cape: Breede River and Coastal regions

TERROIR: 
Vineyards are mainly planted along the coastal zone and toward certain inland areas of the Western Cape Province of South Africa. Mainly Malmesbury shale and Cape granite soils.

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS: 
Trellised vines with an average age of between 12 and 18 years. Mediterranean climate, but the cooling effect of prevailing winds and breezes from the nearby oceans bring the average temperatures down. The vines received supplementary irrigation and produced between 10 to 14 tons per hectare.

WINEMAKING: 
The grapes are machine-harvested early in the morning while its still cool and the grapes temperatures are low. We work reductively and minimise oxidation to protect the flavours in the juice. Grapes were gently pressed, and only the best juice fermented in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine spent 4 months on lees to bring complexity, before clarification and bottling.

APPEARANCE: 
Pale straw in colour with a greenish hue.

RECIPE TO PAIR WITH

Spicy Thai Salad paired with Spier Sauvignon Blanc

 

Crunchy Thai salad with peanut dressing

This easy Thai-style salad is such a refreshing addition to your lunch repertoire as a side dish. It is easy to prepare and packs a big punch with flavour. Add some shredded roasted chicken or sliced smoked chicken for a meaty variation that’ll stand on its own as a delightful lighter meal. Toss the salad with the peanut dressing just before serving.

Ingredients: (serves 4-6 as a side dish)

3-4 cups red cabbage, finely shredded
2-3 cups gem lettuce, finely shredded
1 yellow or red pepper, finely sliced
1 large carrot, finely julienne or shredded
a handful fresh mint, finely sliced
a handful fresh coriander, finely sliced
1/2 cup roasted salted peanuts

For the dressing:

1/3 cup (80 ml) smooth plain peanut butter
30-45 ml (2-3 tablespoons) fresh lime or lemon juice
30 ml (2 tablespoons) honey
15 ml (1 tablespoon) soy sauce
30 ml (2 tablespoons) water at room temperature
1 knob of fresh ginger, finely grated (about 2-3 teaspoons)
1 small garlic clove, finely grated
salt & pepper to taste

Method:

Toss all the ingredients together (cabbage, lettuce, red pepper, carrot, mint, coriander, peanuts) in a large mixing bowl.

Mix all the dressing ingredients together in a small mixing bowl using a hand whisk or stick blender (it takes some elbow grease by hand) to a smooth sauce. Pour half the dressing over the salad just before serving, and toss to coat.

Serve the remainder of the dressing on the side.
