Spier Secret Sparkling
TERROIR / SOIL:
Mainly Kroonstad and Clovelly soils from vineyards in the Stellenbosch, Paarl and Breedekloof regions 14 - 80 km from the Atlantic Ocean.
VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS:
This wine’s grapes were from vines between 14 – 18 years-old growing in a south-facing vineyard. Average Temperature: winter: 9/16°C, summer 14/26°C Annual Rainfall: 850 – 1100 mm.
Grapes were hand-harvested early in the morning, crushed and destemmed. Skin contact lasted six hours. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperatures. The wine was blended together before bottling.
There are strawberry and raspberry aromas with hints of Muscat on the nose. The rich, honeyed palate bursts with vivacious bubbles and has a crisp, fresh finish.
Serve ice cold on its own or as a delightful breakfast or lunch companion.
