The Spier Seaward range is influenced by the Cape’s coastal terroir. All the grapes used in this range are grown within 25km of the cold Atlantic seaboard and the temperate waters of False Bay. This Chenin Blanc is made from with grapes handpicked from the breezy Tygerberg Hills, 15km away from the cold Atlantic
Grapes were hand-harvested early in the morning and pre-cooled prior to hand-sorting, destemming and crushing. Skin contact was limited to four hours and the free-run juice drained off to settle overnight before inoculation. Fermentation took place in 300- and 400-liter barrels. The wine matured for 10 months in French oak barrels (10% new and 90% older barrels).
