Just like beer lovers, every wine drinker has their preferred brand of wine that they are loyal to and if you are like me, that brand will be Spier. So you can imagine how exciting my Wednesday afternoon of Spier wine tasting with Spier’s Sommelier Daniel de Kock was. Daniel also happens to be in town for the rest of week taking Spier wine lovers through wine tastings and other activities and events that will run until Monday (It is a long weekend after all), including a wine-tastic weekend at the Kongoni Naivasha Lodge. If that is not the best way to spend your long weekend then I don’t know what is.
The wine tasting on Wednesday at the Nairobi Wine gallery with Daniel included the Spier signature range as well as the Creative Block range (which I’m happy to announce are now available in the Kenyan market at the Nairobi Wine Gallery located on General Mathenge Drive).
Spier Creative Block wines
The Spier Creative Block blends are award-winning wines that get their name from Spier art projects. These projects combine artworks from different artists and rearrange them to create quality wines that will blow away your wine-drinking mind away. The grapes that create the Creative Block blends are selected from specific vineyard blocks.
Creative Block 2
A Bordeaux-style white blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
If you are looking to pair light meals, seafood or even some spicy Asian-inspired foods then this is the wine for you.
Creative Block 3
A Rhone-style red blend of Shiraz, Mouvedre and Viognier
This is a multi-award winning blend and can be enjoyed with pan-fried beef or game fillet with brandy sauce.
Creative Block 5
A Bordeaux style red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot
This wine is best paired with slow cooked oxtail or lamb.
