Spier Frans K Smit 2017

Product information "Spier Frans K Smit 2017"
The Spier Frans K Smit shines in an intense, powerful red in the glass. Already in the bouquet, the red wine blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (61%), Merlot (25%), Cabernet Franc (7%) and Malbec (7%) named after winemaker Frans K Smit shows its richness of facets. The intense scent of red fruits is underpinned by cigar box. A hint of violets and mint chocolate perfectly rounds off the first impression. On the palate, the red wine, aged for eighteen months in French oak, scores with nuances of dark berries accompanied by violets, smoky tones and oak notes. Well-integrated, noticeable tannins give the Spier Frans K Smit a terrific mouthfeel. Therefore, the red wine is a delight for the palate on its own, but it can also be combined excellently with aromatic dishes with dark meat.

Spier Wine from Stellenbosch

The Spier winery is located in the 'wine heart' of South Africa: Stellenbosch. The excellent soils and good rainfall during the winter months, paired with the expertise and knowledge of the winemakers, make for a constant high quality. Being approximately 25 kilometres away from Cape Town, Spier is also a popular travel destination.

Spier Wine with a Long Tradition

Spier can look back on a long and successful history. Proudly, the winemakers maintain the proven traditions in wine cultivation yet always look ahead in the future and develop innovative ideas for growing and developing red as well as white wine. The first grapes had been pressed here in 1712, and since 1767 Spier is a registered vineyard. Nowadays, the yard plays a key role in South Africa's success on the wine market, not least due to the high quality standards that are achieved here. Amongst others, Spier offers the Signature Range which excites with its easily salubrious and fruity wine. Two premium collections, 21 Gables and Creative Block, are aimed at the wine lover. Both collections have an excellent quality in common, which has been awarded numerous times.

In order to ensure the best quality possible and the freshest food, the ingredients are sourced from sustainably managed suppliers in the close surroundings.
