Spier Moscato Pink

WINEMAKER:
Anton Swarts – Cape Wine Master

ORIGIN:
Selected vineyards within the Breedekloof and coastal regions of the Western Cape.

TERROIR / SOIL:
Decomposed granite soils from mountain foothills, as well as alluvial soil in an ancient riverbed with good drainage, aeration and water retention capacity.

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS:
Trellised vines between 9 and 17 years old yielded the grapes for this wine. They received supplementary drip irrigation and produced between 3,5 and 5 tons per hectare.

Temperature: winter ±10ºC; summer ±26ºC Annual rainfall: 40 mm – 200 mm Proximity to ocean: ≤120 km

WINEMAKING:
Grapes were hand-harvested in mid-March. White and red Moscato grapes were de-stemmed and crushed at the cellar. A few hours of skin contact were allowed on the red varietals to ensure the juice was a lovely pink. The grapes were pressed to extract the juice and the tank was left to settle overnight. The juice was inoculated with a pure yeast culture to begin fermentation, which was temperature controlled and stopped after a few days at ±2°- 3º Balling, allowing the sugars from the grape to remain in the wine. The individual tanks selected for the blend were centrifuged to remove the yeast cells, then cross-flowed. The wine was then prepared for bottling. The varietals used to produce this Signature Moscato Pink were Muscat d’Alexandrie, Morio Muscat, Muscat de Hambourg and/or Muscat Ottonel. These were chosen as the best varietals from this specific vintage able to represent the Moscato style.

APPEARANCE:
Pink in colour

TASTING NOTE:
A crisp, refreshing semi-sweet wine. On both the nose and the palate, expect to encounter sweet grape, strawberry and raspberry with hints of Turkish delight and rose petals.

SERVE WITH:
Enjoy by itself as an aperitif or with a curry or lightly spiced fruit tart.
