Spier Chenin Blanc named world’s best

Spier's 21 Gables Chenin Blanc 2016
The Spier’s 21 Gables Chenin Blanc 2016 has been crowned the world’s best Chenin Blanc at the International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC) 2018.

Spier’s cellar master Frans Smit said, “We are thrilled that our flagship Chenin has received such a prestigious award. This trophy, along with the wine’s other accolades, is testament to the fact that our decade-long focus on crafting quality Chenin is bearing fruit.”

In May, it not only won the Harold Eedes Trophy for Best Chenin Blanc at the Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show but also received the Trophy for Best White Wine Overall.

At the 2018 Top 100 SA Wines it was awarded a Double Platinum and was also included in the Standard Bank Top 10 Chenin Blanc Challenge – an achievement that both previous vintages, 2014 and 2015, also attained.
