Spier Signature Chardonnay 2018

R64.00

SOIL
Soil and subsoil from various regions of the Western Cape.

TASTING NOTES
Grape fruit, lime, yellow apple, banana, pear and hints of vanilla and butterscotch on the nose. The palate is creamy with layered fruit, pleasant acidity and good balance.

VINIFICATION
From February, grapes were hand-harvested from selected vineyard blocks and then de-stemmed, slightly crushed and pressed at the cellar. The juice of the individual block selections (some separate and some blended) were then temperature-control fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeast strains. Only the best tanks were selected for the final preparation of the blend. Maturation occurred on the fine lees for two months prior to preparation for bottling. 5% of the wine was barrel fermented in new French oak barrels to add complexity to the wine.

WHEN TO DRINK
Enjoy well-chilled with SASSI Friendly pan-fried salmon in a lemon butter sauce.

  1. Very good Chard

    Posted by Stefan Johannes on 17th Nov 2016

    This is a wine I bought to balance out a function where lots of Spier wine was consumed. I bought this along with the Chenin Blanc which is one of my favorites. Oddly, I found myself drinking the Chardonnay the whole evening. Very good easy drinking wine.

  4. Enjoyable everyday Chardonnay

    Posted by Glen Bresler on 21st Aug 2015

    As a regular, everyday wine drinker, I am always looking for quality, yet affordable offerings. Spier chardonnay is exactly - enjoyable, yet at a price I can drink on a regular basis.
