The Spier True to Terroir Chardonnay is made from quality grapes sourced from selected vineyards within the Coastal regions of the Tygerberg Hills of the Western Cape.


The grapes were grown in Oakleaf soils along the South-west facing vineyards of the Tygerberg Hills, just outside Cape Town. Located 16km from the ocean, here the vines are dryland and semi-trellised with an average age of 16 years. The vineyards enjoy a moderate summer with low night temperatures and a cold winter, encouraging a longer hangtime and gradual ripening.


The grapes were hand-harvested between 22.5° and 23.5°B. The cool grapes were destemmed at the cellar, slightly crushed and lightly pressed. Skin contact was allowed for 4 hours at 10°C. The free-run juice drained by gravity was used for fermentation, 60% of which fermented in stainless-steel tanks and 40% in older French oak barrels. Maturation occurred on the fine lees for 6 months prior to bottling to give extra body, elegance, flavour and freshness to the wine. The oak component was blended with the stainless-steel fermented wine prior to bottling.
