A sophisticated wine that offers the perfect balance of power and elegance. Produced by one of South Africa’s most renowned wineries, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc is a true masterpiece. The wine boasts a deep ruby color with aromas of blackcurrant, cherry, vanilla, and spicy oak. The palate is rich and complex with flavors of dark fruit, tobacco, and chocolate. The tannins are firm, yet velvety, leading to a long and satisfying finish.

Frans Smit and his winemaking team have harnessed 3 centuries of winemaking history, transforming Spier from a small cellar in the Eighties into a top award-winning Stellenbosch producer. Crafting blends of distinction, and identifying regional vineyards that are some of the Capes best-kept secrets. ‘Respect what the vineyard hands you’ is his mantra.

FKS: ‘This wine has the long-legged capacity to be a big future player. It’s a rare pleasure to uncork the occasional bottle. Every time, I’m amazed. Although big and structured, this wine has a gentle alter ego. The tannins aren’t hard – they leave a subtle, sweet sensation. It’s thanks to the terroir, really. The fruit hails from the Helderberg ̶ by far the best South African terroir for this style of red blend.’
