Spier Secret Sparkling

R79.00

Hello, Spier Secret Sparkling.

Popping for the first time this season, Secret Sparkling is by Jacques Erasmus, Spier’s senior white winemaker and winner of the Diners Club Winemaker of the Year Award, 2014.

With its berry basket of flavours, this crisp, delicately salmon toned sparkling Chardonnay/ Pinot Noir blend comes sealed with a retro cap that pops like a soda bottle. Revealing strawberry and raspberry aromas, whiffs of Muscat and a rich, honeyed palate. Drink as an apéritif, pair with strawberry sorbet or serve with a light desert.

Exclusively available online and at the Spier Wine Shop on the farm.

WINEMAKER:
Jacques Erasmus

TERROIR / SOIL:
Mainly Kroonstad and Clovelly soils from vineyards in the Stellenbosch, Paarl and Breedekloof regions 14 - 80 km from the Atlantic Ocean.

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS:
This wine’s grapes were from vines between 14 – 18 years-old growing in a south-facing vineyard. Average Temperature: winter: 9/16°C, summer 14/26°C Annual Rainfall: 850 – 1100 mm.

WINEMAKING:
Grapes were hand-harvested early in the morning, crushed and destemmed. Skin contact lasted six hours. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperatures. The wine was blended together before bottling.

ANALYSIS:
Alc: 12.05% TA: 5.7 g/L
RS: 18.4 g/L pH: 3.4

APPEARANCE:
Salmon pink

TASTING NOTES:
