Shake off those winter blues and raise a glass to the arrival of a beautiful new season - and a new organic wine range. From 1 September to 31 October, Spier will serve our new Spring Organic Wine Tasting Tasting at our Stellenbosch-based Tasting Room. Visitors can enjoy four delicious, freshly-prepared vegetarian bites paired with our award-winning organic wines, including two whites, one rosé and one red.
This one-of-a-kind tasting starts with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc from Spier’s brand new organic range, Good Natured. Good Natured offers premium, organically-certified wines that have been nurtured in line with an ethos that bears good fruit, reflecting Spier’s commitment to ethics, the environment and socially conscious farming. The 2022 Good Natured Sauvignon Blanc is served alongside a delightfully light cucumber and apple Gazpacho topped with Chevin Goat's espuma to awaken the palate and offer insight into the potential of organic wine.
Next up, wine lovers will be treated to The Yellowwood Organic White paired with a spicy Jalapeno Popper stuffed with decadent cream cheese and pickled carrot filling. Crisp with citrus aromas, the Yellowwood Organic White 2021 stunned judges this awards season, bringing home a grand gold from the 29th annual Concours Mondial de Bruxelles.
As you transition towards slightly heartier bites, The Yellowwood Organic Rosé makes for a perfect guide. An aromatic mix of berries and rosewater notes, this bright rosé is a colourful complement to the crispy beetroot chips served with deep magenta beetroot and pomegranate hummus.
To finish the tasting on a sweet note, enjoy wild mushroom toast topped with dark chocolate and a dash of Maldon salt presented alongside the new Good Natured Organic Shiraz / Cabernet Sauvignon. With blackcurrant, mulberry and hints of allspice on the nose leading to a suavely smooth finish, this red blend is bound to impress even the most staunch organic-wine fundies.
