Each wine has been organically crafted to live up to the high standards for which Spier is known. A blend of four noble varieties, this rosé is crisp and refreshing. Strawberry, cherry and floral notes are followed by a touch of citrus and vanilla on the delicate palate.
Excellent on its own or with salads and lighter dishes, such as smoked salmon tartare, sushi and mild cheeses.

WINEMAKER: Tania Kleintjes
ORIGIN: Coastal Region
TERROIR / SOIL:
From terroir unfettered by artificial pesticides, fungicides and fertilisers.
The organically grown vineyards are nurtured in decomposed granite soils with a high clay percentage in Stellenbosch, Paarl and Groenekloof regions. The certified organically grown grapes are sourced from vines aged between 15 and 25. The average annual rainfall for these vineyards ranges between 450 mm and 500 mm.
The grapes were hand-harvested in the morning and collected in 8 kg lug boxes. The grapes were then cooled in the cellar before hand-sorting and de-stemming took place. No skin contact was given, with a low-intervention approach used throughout the winemaking process. The juice was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks and allowed to mature for four months on its gross lees to enhance its structure before bottling.Tasting note
