Anmeldertekst:

Årgang 2015 hos SmagPåVin.dk v/Jesper Bo Bendtsen den 24/1 2020: ”Dette er håndholdt kærlighed fra winemakeren selv – og af sådan en kvalitet, at han lægger eget navn til cuvéen. Køb nu, gem fem-seks år.”

 

Siden det tidlige 1700-tal er der hos Spier dyrket vine, og gennem tiderne har vinene vundet adskillige priser både lokalt og internationalt. På nuværende tidspunkt bliver vinene til under vejledning af den prisvindende Cellar Master, Frans K. Smit.

 

Spier is one of the oldest wine farms in South Africa with a recorded history dating back to 1692. While rooted in this heritage, Spier has a vibrant and conscious energy. Award- winning wine can be paired with fabulous food, grown either on the farm or by nearby farmers. The winery is one of the most awarded in the country and the Spier Hotel and meeting facilities offer inspiring winelands getaways in the tranquility of nature.

Spier is committed to doing the right thing for the environment and communities, and is renowned for its responsible tourism approach. The farm has been recognised by various external organisations including Fair Trade in Tourism (FTTSA) and the Wine Industry Ethical Trade Association (WIETA), and was awarded gold at the African Responsible Tourism Awards 2016 in the category of Best for Accommodation for Responsible Employment.

In 2011, Condé Nast Traveler World Saver Award recognised the estate as the top international destination ‘Doing it All’. Spier is a WWF Conservation Champion, and the cellar has ISO 22000 certification, is Fair Trade accredited, organically certified and follows the Integrated Production of Wine (IPW) criteria.

Spier’s environmental and social initiatives are many and varied, and include ways to reduce water usage. 100% of its wastewater, and over 80% of its solid waste, is recycled. Spier supports local communities through the tree-preneur project, which encourages people in impoverished communities to grow trees in exchange for essential goods. The estate also supports entrepreneurs by helping them create micro-enterprises linked to Spier.
