Spier 21 Gables Pinotage


Beautifully balanced and intensely complex, this Pinotage has concentrated flavours of dark fruit, spice and chocolate. 20 months of oak maturation took place for 20 months in oak has resulted in a firm but velvety tannins. Enjoy it at any point over the next decade; it is only going to get even better over time.

Tasting Notes: Flavours of caramelised black cherries, blackberry, allspice and dark chocolate lead to a generous palate with smooth, dense fruit and velvety tannins. The wine leaves an impression of poise, balance and length worthy of ageing.

Serve with mature beef, venison, lamb and ostrich dishes with berry jus or strong cheese.

Grapes were harvested by hand, destemmed and individually sorted; raisins, pink and large berries were removed. Partial (15%) natural fermentation took place in stainless steel; the balance was inoculated with specific yeast strains. Free-run wine was drained to a combination of 70% first and 30% second fill French-, American- and Hungarian-oak barrels, and matured for 20 months. Barrel selections were conducted to ensure a balanced, cool-climate Pinotage with great complexity and ageing potential.
