Spier Signature Chenin Blanc 2017

R49.00

SOIL
Combination of alluvial and decomposed granite soils.

TASTING NOTES
Pale gold colour with fresh lime green flashes around the edge. Tastes of green-apple, ripe white-fleshed nectarine. Fresh, zippy, ripe fruited, sliced pear, undertow of honey with a limesquirt ending.

VINIFICATION
Grapes were hand harvested from selected vineyard blocks that vary from bush vine to trellised vines. Grapes received at the cellar were de-stemmed, slightly crushed before pressing and given brief skin contact. Free run juice settled in the tanks overnight and the following morning, the clear settled juice, of the individual block selections (some kept separate and some blended) were racked from their lees and inoculated with selected yeast strains. Fermentation is temperature controlled. Only the best tanks are selected for the final preparation of the blend according to the style of the wine. Maturation occurred on the fine lees for another three months to give extra body and elegance, prior preparation for bottling. The wine was not oaked.

WHEN TO DRINK
Enjoy with sesame coated chicken goujons, grilled goats cheese crottin on crisp bruschetta.

  1. Great Everyday Wine

    This wine is one of my favorite 2016 Chenins I've had thus far. Its very fruity and very drinkable. Great for that nice sunset with friends or a light lunch!

    I normally purchase Sauvignon Blanc when purchasing white wine but I find the Spier Chenin Blanc a distinctive alternative with similar aromas.
