Spier Creative Block 3 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 79% Shiraz, 18% Mourvedre and 3% Viognier. Great care is taken in the making of this Rhone blend:The grapes are harvested by hand and pre-cooled prior to de-stemming, hand sorted and aged in 90% French and 10% American oak barrels for 18 months. The wines are made individually to address each varietal’s need for undivided attention and to ensure that the varietal and site expression is forthcoming. Selective tasting from the barrels helped to determine the composition of the blend. The harmony amongst the three varietals is superb, attention to detail has ensured balance between fruit, palate volume, oak extract and tannin. Subtle perfumed notes of violets, pomegranate and mulberry followed by spicy flavours of black pepper and coriander. A silky, rich mid-palate follows with concentration of fruit and dense, silky tannins. International Wine and Spirits Competition 2012 - Gold Outstanding, Mundus Vini Wine Awards 2012 - Gold, Decanter World Wine Competition 2013 - Gold, Concours Mondial 2013 - Silver, International Wine Challenge 2013 - Silver

THE SPIER EXPERIENCE Spier is one of the Stellenbosch winelands’ most celebrated destinations. The wine farm has sweeping views of the Helderberg mountain range, and lies besides the calming waters of the Eerste River. While producing award-winning wine, and offering world-class hotel and conference facilities, we recognise that we are part of a rapidly changing world that requires a new way of doing things. We hope that a visit to our farm will inspire fresh insights, discovery and reflection as we journey together towards a sustainable future. Spier is located in the heart of South Africa’s primary wine-growing region, just 20 minutes from Cape Town International Airport. We were one of the first organisations in South Africa to be accredited by Fair Trade in Tourism South Africa. Spier was also the first winery to be accredited by the Wine Industry Ethical Trade Association. Read less
