Fairview Homtini 2018

R150.00

Named after our chief winemaker’s ancestral heritage, this wine channels the pioneering spirit of Anthony de Jager’s forefathers, blending together Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz into a refined Italian style blend. Homtini. With the 2015 receiving a 90 Tim Atkin Score and a 4.5 star Platter rating, we see great things for Homtini’s future. A winning dinner party favour, Italian Stallion and all-round beaut of a wine. Bellissimo!

Description

The Sangiovese grapes were hand sorted and fermented in “foudre”, with a small percentage of whole bunches included in the fermenter. The other grape varieties were gently crushed, destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks with pump overs occurring three times a day. After fermentation, the wines were matured for 16 months in 70% French and 30% American oak barrels, with 15% new French oak used. This wine was made from a selection of barrels showcasing the unique characteristics of these varieties from the Darling wine region.
