Spier Merlot Signature Collection 2018

Western Cape, South AfricaThe Spier Merlot comes off cooler vineyards, averaging 20 years old, located 20 to 60km from the coast in Swartland, Paarl, Overberg, and Stellenbosch. Post-ferment, twenty percent remains in stainless steel while the rest is exposed to wood staves during the ageing process. Spier has a brighter attack than its companions in this price range, and you fell it in the soft, plummy, cherry fruit marked with a touch of menthols, earth, and ash in the finish. Ready to drink and well suited to roasted chicken.Tasted: 30 May 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 13.99 BCLS Exclusive Producer: SpierDistributors: Whitehall Premium Wines & Spirits
