If you ever need a standout performance from a red come dinnertime, then this is your blend. International critics agree too, with the 2017 vintage winning Gold at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2020 and a 93 point rating from British Wine Master Tim Atkin.

Spier Creative Block wines are a South African take on traditional Rhône and Bordeaux-style blends. Our winemakers carefully select grapes from different vineyard blocks, combining and blending taste profiles to create wines that are much greater than the sum of their parts. The Spier Creative Block range of blends takes its name from a Spier Arts project proudly supporting South African artists.
