Spier Frans K Smit 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Established in 1692, Spier is one of South Africa's most historic wine producers. Set on the banks of the Eerste River with breathtaking views of the Stellenbosch Mountains, this award-winning wine farm is not only one of the oldest but also most developed wine estates, boasting beautifully restored Cape Dutch heritage buildings and South Africa’s oldest dated wine cellar. Its central ethos is of sustainablility, and working in harmony with nature. Frans K Smit is named after the Spier Cellar Master, and is the flagship wine of the Spier producers. This Super Blend is the culmination of 13 years of patience and dedication to the vineyard, observing and nurturing its performance and quality. Aged for 26 months in fine-grain French Oak, this special wine is ruby red in colour, with a chorus of ripe red fruits on the nose. Cherries, cassis, tobacco and ripe banana feature on the palate, where this full-bodied wine has a long and masterfully balanced finish. Savour on its own, or with a prime cut of beef - sirloin or rib-eye steak for example.

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
