This remarkable wine is one to treasure — make it the cornerstone of your own collection, or gift it to the connoisseur in your life. Named after Spier's acclaimed Cellar Master, this represents the pinnacle of his passion, craft and commitment to terroir.
The Spier Frans K Smit Red was made with grapes handpicked on the slopes of Helderberg — arguably the best place in South Africa to grow Bordeaux varietals. Forming 50% of the blend, majestic, mysterious Cabernet Sauvignon takes centre stage, with stellar Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot providing aroma and structure in memorable supporting roles. Offering dark fruits presence and traces of cigar box with tannins that are firm but amiably rounded.
Enjoyable now, this collector’s wine will show best at 10 years after harvest, and will complement most red meat dishes — something even as simple and exquisite as flame-seared grass-fed ribeye.
