Cape Winemakers Guild

Spier Frans K Smit Auction Selection 2017

60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine of Origin Stellenbosch

The grapes were hand-picked, destemmed and hand-sorted before fermentation. The wine was naturally fermented in a 400 litre roller barrel and an open top wood fermenter. Maturation for 22 months in barrel before being bottled.

Tasting Notes: It’s a silky textured concentrated wine with hints of blackberry and black cherry. The wine has a dense core with beautiful fresh tones of red fruit lingering on the palate. This is the first Certified Organic Red Wine to be offered on the CWG Auction. Biodynamic principles were used in both farming and winemaking processes.

Ready for drinking now and until 2032.

Winemaker: Frans Smit
