At Spier Home Farm the differences in altitude, aspect, solar radiation and wind exposure results in significant mesoclimate differences over short distances. This, coupled with variations in soil (mainly Escourt/Pinedene transitioning to Cartef), creates a terroir that ensures full and complex wines with unique character and style.
The organically grown grapes used in the Spier Farm House Organic Chenin Blanc were hand-harvested early in the morning in 8kg lug boxes and pre-cooled. Sorting by hand followed. A low-intervention approach was used throughout the winemaking process. The natural yeast flora of the grapes completed the fermentation in 300-400L French barrels in a temperature-controlled environment. Throughout the fermentation and after, the barrels went through strict barrel selection so that only the best ones were chosen to go into the final product.

Rich golden hue.
A lovely bouquet of citrus marmalade. Honeycomb, minerality and subtle pear follows on the silky smooth palate which has a long, aromatic finish.
Enjoy with grilled chicken or seafood dishes such as crab, prawns or grilled snoek. It also is a perfect match for pork belly and oven-roasted butternut.
