"Many of South Africa's traditionally most revered wines, and a few of her best, are Cabernets," notes Jancis Robinson, Master of Wine. This delicious Cab hails from Spier, one of the oldest wine farms in South Africa with a history dating back to 1692. They're one of the most-awarded estates in the country, and were named South Africa's Winery of the Year at Mundus Vini in 2011. Their exclusive, new Farmouse series of wines celebrates the estate's focus on sustainable farming in vineyards across some of the Cape's top wine districts.
"Mouthwatering blueberry, raspberry and oaky spice flavors – a real winter warmer" Daily Express Map showing Western Cape Tasting note information The impressive Spier Estate (a former International Wine & Spirit Competition ‘South African Wine Producer of the Year’ no less) pre-dates most of the great châteaux of Bordeaux in France! They have been crafting superb wines at Spier now for three centuries. Spier Estate is also committed to the highest standards on environmental issues and to supporting their local community, with many accreditations for both. Spier has been owned by the Enthovens since 1993, a family passionate about producing really great wines. Chief winemaker Frans Smit has won scores of Golds and Trophies, including the much coveted General Smuts Trophy. This weighty, oak aged Cabernet uses a special batch of super ripe grapes and has lovely balance and length. Back at the cellar, Reserve Bin 415 was treated to luxurious barrel aging, which adds the polish and complexity you’d expect in Cabernet of this caliber. Luscious and richly structured, Reserve Bin 415 offers dark berry, subtle chocolate, toasty oak, and classic graphite characters. A perfect match for barbecue, hearty stews, and more.
