13 Nov Bloemcool Tinto Fino Tempranillo | Our 2nd Vintage Now Available!
Today we are celebrating this robust, flavourful grape with the release of our new vintage of Bloemcool Tinto Fino Tempranillo 2014 – a wine that sold out as quickly as it hit our Tasting Room last year!
We introduced the maiden Bloemcool range in 2015, and have quickly seen it enjoy a more discerning level of appreciation. Named after Fairview’s original farm name of Bloemkoolfontein, the range gives an avenue for our winemakers to experiment with esoteric, unusual blends and varieties. François Hugo, vintner before the Back family, used everything off the land, including the chestnut trees for farmstead furniture and recycled wine bottles for new releases. Bloemcool embraces this heritage by repurposing past bottles and hand-making labels that are implanted with real cauliflower seeds, encouraging the new keeper of the wine to let the story of Bloemcool perpetually live on.
Dense, deep red in glass, our sun-baked vineyards of Paarl provide no lack of ripe fruit and spice – expect hints of vanilla, fresh dates and dried fig aromas. Dark and brooding in style, our Tempranillo shares a full-bodied palate mingling with flavours of cranberries and toasted oak. Fine grained tannins add a sense of precision to a very long and seamless finish. This will age beautifully.
Try with: braised lamb, venison or rich roast pork.
Available for R450 per bottle
Total Amount Bottled: 470 bottles
Exclusively available for purchase from this week via the Fairview Online Shop – or at our cellar doors in Paarl.
We hope you fall in love with this variety as much as we have!
