THIS RHÔNE-STYLE BLEND IS CREATED FROM SHIRAZ, MOURVEDRE AND VIOGNIER.

The Creative Block 3 from Spier is a fascinating Rhone Blend that shows a beautiful, deep red colour in the glass. Comprising of 84% Shiraz, 13% Mourvedre and 3% Viognier, the Creative Block 3 shows wonderful depth of flavour. A perfumed bouquet releases rich aromas of pepper, liquorice and spiced oak, translating seamlessly on to a smooth, dense palate. Well-structured tannins impart the wine with a pleasing balanced quality that compliments a long, persistent finish. The wine concludes its palate-pleasing performance with a lingering aftertaste of spiced plums that dissipates slowly.

Food Pairing

This multi award winner can be enjoyed with pan-fried beef fillet with a brandy sauce and baked potato, carpaccio or a south indian curry.

The Estate

Spier is located in the region Stellenbosch and belongs to the founders of the Stellenbosch Wine Route. Yet the winery is not only known for its high class wines. A restaurant which creates wonderful meals is also part of the estate and Spier attracts many visitors to the winery with various events. Nevertheless, the premium wines are still the focus of the winery, such as the Spier Creative Block 3.
