Spier is one of the oldest wine farms in South Africa with a recorded history dating back to 1692.
Today they have embraced many modern approaches and aim to minimise the impact of their activities on the environment. They are a Champion member of the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative, organically certified and Fair Trade accredited.
Wherever possible, Spier look for ways to support local industry and communities. They support local communities through the Treepreneur Project which encourages people in impoverished communities to grow trees in exchange for essential goods.
Grapes for the Signature Sauvignon Blanc are hand harvested from selected vineyard blocks and taken to the cellar where they are de-stemmed, slightly crushed and given a short skin contact before being pressed. Fermentation is temperature controlled in stainless steel vats followed by ageing on the fine lees for another three months to give extra body and elegance. This wine is not oaked.
Pale straw in colour with a greenish hue. Intense aromas of gooseberries, passion fruit, green and yellow peppers and hints of tropical fruit on the nose. Medium bodied good balance between fruit and acidity on the palate.
