SPIER PS GRAND RESERVE WHITE 2020

Following the great success of Spier PS Grand Reserve Red, our winemakers are proud to present Spier PS Grand Reserve White, a blend of 54% Chardonnay and 46% Chenin Blanc.

WINEMAKER: Jacques Erasmus

ORIGIN: Coastal Region

TERROIR / SOIL:

Soils of weathered granite, with some deposits of Malmesbury shale. The vineyards are mainly planted in deep soils in Stellenbosch and Swartland regions.

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS:

Dryland, semi-trellised and bush vines, with an average age of around 20 years, yielded the grapes for this wine. The fruit was harvested from the first week of February to the middle of March at a yield of 8 tons per hectare. The climate differs from maritime (close to the Atlantic Ocean) to Mediterranean (more inland).

WINEMAKING:

The grapes were hand-harvested early in the morning. Light pressing followed destemming and crushing. Skin contact was limited to four hours. The free-run juice drained off to settle overnight before inoculation. A portion of the blend was naturally fermented. Fermentation took place in 300L and 400L barrels and the wine matured for 8 months on fermentation lees before racking and blending.
