Spier Private Collection Pinotage

TASTING NOTE:
A concentration of red cherries and violets is followed by a dense centre of allspice and sweet fruit. The beautiful integration of oak delivers a rich wine with good balance and fine tannin.

SERVE WITH:
Braised duck breast with a side of mashed potatoes, a dash of truffle oil and broccolini. Or enjoy with a mild Indian-style curry.

Deep ruby red with a bright hue.

WINEMAKER:
Heidi Dietstein

ORIGIN:

Coastal region

TERROIR / SOIL:

Rolling hills of decomposed granite with clay subsoil from the regions of Stellenbosch.

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS:

The 6- to 21-year-old vines are vertically trellised for easy foliage management to expose the grapes to the sun. Stellenbosch fruit is subjected to cooler average temperatures which allow slow, even ripening.

WINEMAKING:

Hand-picked Pinotage grapes from carefully selected vineyard blocks are destemmed and fermented on the skins in stainless-steel tanks for up to 18 days. The free-run juice was barreled down for malolactic fermentation and maturation in a combination of French and American oak barrels, of which 30% were first fill and the balance second fill. The wine matured for 14 months in barrel before individual barrels were blended.
