Description

Spier Signature Chardonnay Pinot Noir Rosé 2021

Spier Signature Chardonnay Pinot Noir Rosé is as delicious as it is down-to-earth. This salmon-coloured summertime sipper is elegant, unpretentious and beautifully balanced. Marries strawberry and yellow apple flavours with a crisp finish. Whether you need a tipple for brunch, paella dinner, a picnic — or simply something to enjoy while reading in the sun — this sublime blend adds understated flair to any occasion. Crafted with the utmost care for everyday enjoyment.

The grapes are sourced from trellised vines aged between 12–16 years receiving supplementary irrigation and producing 10–14 tonnes per hectare. The vines grow in predominantly Malmesbury shale and Cape granite soils. Vineyards are planted along the coastal zone and towards certain inland areas of the Western Cape. Mediterranean climate, with the temperatures lowered by the cooling effect of prevailing winds and sea breezes.

Harvesting of the grapes in the early morning, gentle crushing and light pressing at the cellar, where skin contact helps to create the perfect colour. Only the free run juice drains off to settle overnight. Fermentation of the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir together in stainless-steel tanks under controlled temperatures between 12–14°C.
