Pinotage Privat Collection Spier Wines Südafrika Coastalregion Flasche Pinotage 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Grapes from selected vineyard blocks were hand-harvested at optimum ripeness, meticulously sorted, gently crushed and cooled to 10-12 degrees Celcius. Three days of cold soaking preceded temperature-controlled fermentation; 15% of which occurred in open top oak fermenters. The wine matured in a combination of French- and American- oak; with individual barrels selected for blending.

THE SPIER EXPERIENCE Spier is one of the Stellenbosch winelands’ most celebrated destinations. The wine farm has sweeping views of the Helderberg mountain range, and lies besides the calming waters of the Eerste River. While producing award-winning wine, and offering world-class hotel and conference facilities, we recognise that we are part of a rapidly changing world that requires a new way of doing things. We hope that a visit to our farm will inspire fresh insights, discovery and reflection as we journey together towards a sustainable future. Spier is located in the heart of South Africa’s primary wine-growing region, just 20 minutes from Cape Town International Airport. We were one of the first organisations in South Africa to be accredited by Fair Trade in Tourism South Africa. Spier was also the first winery to be accredited by the Wine Industry Ethical Trade Association. Read less

An outstanding Pinotage that is affordable and available for most people. Wonderful smooth taste that goes great on the back porch watching the sun set.

Four and a half glasses



Tasting Notes:

Intense ruby colour hints at a rich and complex wine. Ripe cherry aromas and subtle oak-derived spice show with roasted vanilla, banana, toffee and caramel on a tantalising nose.

Grapes from selected vineyard blocks were hand-harvested at optimum ripeness, meticulously sorted, gently crushed and cooled to 10-12 degrees Celcius. Three days of cold soaking preceded temperature-controlled fermentation; 15% of which occurred in open top oak fermenters.
