The Spier Discover Collection is made for the flexible wine drinker. In this series there are three wines that are all easy to drink but full of delicious flavors. This Spier Discover Rose is a good example of this. This delicious rose is made from Pinotage. A grape that lends itself very well to a rosé wine. The result is a beautiful rose wine with a beautiful pink color. Pleasant impressions of red fruits such as berries and raspberries in the scent, a small hint of citrus and a slightly spicy touch. The taste is really a picture! The delicious red fruit nuances are interspersed with a subtle hint of citrus, making this rose deliciously fresh. The finish is long, summery and fresh.

Spier Estate has its origins in 1692, in the colony on the Cape. During this time the original estate was founded by the German settler Arnout Janz. He saw enormous potential for growing grapes on this soil. And this inspiration turned out to be a great success. Spier's cellar built in 1767 is one of the oldest surviving cellars in South Africa. These cellars are still in use to this day. Many old buildings can be found on the Estate. Some even from the early days. In total there are 21 buildings with a different facade on each building. The top series 21 Gables is based on this.

The Pinotage grapes for this delicious South African rose are harvested by hand. This harvest takes place in the early morning in order to preserve the freshness of the grapes. The grapes are then transported to the winery in small crates, after which the pressing will take place. The aging takes place for 2 months on the Lie before the wine is bottled. The soil on which the grapevines are planted is an old river bed. This makes the soil very fertile and granite-rich, which is perfect for the Pinotage grapes. The vines are between 14 and 19 years old, which means they have built up a lot of character. That is clearly to be tasted. What a whopper of a rosé wine!
