Description

Spier Creative Block 2 2020

A masterpiece that turns heads wherever it appears. Spier Creative Block 2 is a pale straw colour. Tropical character of gooseberries, lime citrus, white peach and subtle cassis, while underlying fynbos and hints of white asparagus deliver vegetal notes. The young palate closes with a long and tightly structured mineral finish.

A blend of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Semillon. Sourced from four different vineyards planted at an altitude between 204 and 295 meters above sea level. All the vineyards are farmed dry land and have a natural low yield. The southwest-facing vineyards have Clovelly, Oakleaf and Swartland soils. The ocean breeze moderates the heat, giving the berries a longer hanging time on the vine. These conditions create concentrated grapes with intense flavours.

Grapes were hand-harvested early in the morning in 10 kg lug boxes and pre-cooled before hand-sorting, destemming and crushing. Skin contact was limited to 6 hours and the free-run juice drained off to settle overnight before inoculation with a selected yeast strain. The fermentation took place under controlled temperatures between 12–14°C. The wine matured for 6 months on the lees before bottling.
