Fairview Swartland

R250

Currently in the midst of a wine revolution pioneered by our very own Charles Back, the Swartland (Black Land) region is famous for its dryland conditions and unirrigated soils. Our wine is a culmination of all that’s exciting about the Swartland. Prepare for a powerful deep ruby red blend, aromas of pepper and cinnamon and a well-integrated palate with good tannin structure.

Description

The fruit was hand-picked at 24.5 degrees Balling and hand sorted over sorting tables. The grapes were fermented in open top oak fermenters, with hand punching daily. Extended skin contact was allowed. After fermentation the wine was basket pressed and transferred to French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and maturation. The wine spent 20 months in 225L French oak barrels, with 20% new wood being used.
