Older Spier vintages shine at Veritas Wine Awards

Spier has scooped three Double Gold medals at the 2018 Veritas Wine Awards, two of which were given to museum class wines. The Spier Creative Block 5 2013, a Bordeaux-style blend, was the third winner.
 
“Given that there is a tendency in South Africa to drink wines young, these accolades offer a powerful reminder that patience can offer a fulsome reward,” Spier Cellar Master Frans Smit says. “At Spier, we’re committed to crafting wines with staying power. In each, bottle maturation has resulted in enhanced subtlety, complexity and gravitas – making them more than worth the wait.”
