Spier Vintage Selection Shiraz Mouvedre Viognier 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine consists of 66% Shiraz, 31% Mourvèdre and 3% Viognier. The grapes were grown in selected vineyard blocks and picked at between 24.8ø and 25.7ø Balling. Cold soaking for 2 to 3 days at a temperature of 13ø-14ø Celsius ensured optimum extraction of colour and fruit flavours. Following fermentation, specific tanks were selected to undergo malolactic fermentation in oak barrels. Maturation in a combination of American and French oak broadened the flavours and added complexity and finesse. The wines from specific barrels were then selected and blended to achieve the desired style.

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
