Description

Spier 21 Gables Pinotage 2016

Spier 21 Gables Pinotage is named in honour of the Spier farm’s 21 architecturally significant gables – the most on any wine farm in South Africa and all meticulously restored.

Deep ruby red colour. Beautifully balanced and intensely complex. Concentrated flavours of caramelised black cherries, dark plums, dark chocolate, and hints of tobacco and oak spice. The full palate is smooth, with a fresh acidity and firm but velvety tannins. Enjoy it at any point, but know that it is only going to get even better over time.

100% Pinotage. The grapes come from Spier’s Dryland vineyards, overlooking False Bay on the Southern side of Stellenbosch. The decomposed granite soils assist with water retention as it contains a high proportion of clay. After hand harvesting, the grapes go through chilling, then bunch sorting and destemming. Partial natural fermentation in stainless steel; the balance was inoculated with a particular yeast strain.  Free-run wine was drained to a combination of first and second fill French, American and Hungarian oak barrels where it matured for 20 months.

 Big, bold, dense and concentrated, especially for a Pinotage, this sees a combination of first and second fill French, American and Hungarian oak and is pretty smoky and toasty at the moment. Give it time, though, because there’s also plenty of dark berry and bramble fruit and tannic backbone. 2021-2026.
