Clovelly, Hutton and Estcourt.

TASTING NOTES
Rich regal red. Sweet sappy super-fruited with red and black fruit. Ripe red and black berries, bloodplums, undertow of eucalyptus and mint. Soft tannins, an easy drinker.

Grapes were harvested at 24° Balling, gently crushed, de-stemmed and cooled. After two days of cold soaking the juice was fermented until dry in stainless steel tanks at 24°C. Three pump-overs were conducted daily. After fermentation 20% of the wine was matured in French oak barrels for 8-10 months and the remainder matured in stainless steel tanks with French oak staves.

WHEN TO DRINK

  1. The best wine at a reasonable price!

    Posted by Isak on 28th Jan 2014

    Since I joined the Spier Wine Club I have never looked back, I am especially impressed by the way I am treated by the wine tasting team and that includes the persons at management level.They always treated me with the highest respect.

    Some of my friends that I introduce to them always ask me whether am a share holder! (Wish I could answer in the positive!)
