Creative Block is our most awarded range of blends, made with 2,3 or 5 varietals from specially selected vineyard blocks.
The simple, modern and bold design of the Creative Block packaging reflects the craft and passion that goes into each of these award-winning blends.
Named and inspired by the Spier Arts Academy project, our winemakers combine grapes from different vineyard blocks to curate unique tastes - always so much more than the sum of their parts.
88% Sauvignon Blanc / 12% Sémillon
Vineyard and Climate Conditions
Four different blocks of vineyards planted on an altitude between 204 and 295 meters, with close proximity to the ocean. This makes for vineyards that are perfect for producing high quality Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon wines. All the blocks are dryland vineyards and have a natural low production. A combination of these conditions create concentrated grapes with intense flavours.
Grapes were hand-harvested early in the morning in 10kg lug boxes and pre-cooled before hand-sorting, destemming and crushing. Skin contact was limited to six hours and the free-run juice drained off to settle overnight before inoculation with a selected yeast strain. The fermentation took place under controlled temperatures between 12° and 14 °C. The wine matured for six months on the lees before bottling.
Gooseberries, limes and white peaches reveal its tropical character, while underlying notes of fynbos and a touch of white asparagus deliver serious depth. The palate is young and tropical, leading to a long, mineral tail that is tight and structured.
