Malolactic fermentation and ripening was carried out in French oak barrels 300L for 18 months (60% first filling, second filling balance). Before mixing, the wines are individually developed to address the unique needs of each variety so that everyone could reach their full potential. Selective tasting barrels determined the composition of the mixture. Expert blending ensured harmony between five varieties. The wine has achieved the optimum balance between fruit volume palate, oak and tannin extract, all without losing the intimate quality and unique sense of place of each variety.

Spier Wine Farm Creative Block 5 Merlot Cab Sauv Cab Franc Malbec Petit Verdot

Complex flavours of dark berry fruit and dark chocolate on the nose, before leading onto a generous palate of berry fruit. Well balanced and full, with a smooth finish of oak and perfume.
