Fairview La Beryl Blanc 2020


Honouring Charles’s late mother, this traditional straw-dried sweet wine is a true labour of love. A bold, assertive dessert wine with aromas of apricots, lemon, grape and honey flavours on the nose. Savour a full mouth feeling with ripe tropical fruit and zesty citrus flavours, followed by an unctuous texture courtesy of the fresh, well balanced acidity.

The La Beryl is a traditional straw-dried sweet wine named after Charles Back’s mother. The wine was produced using Chenin Blanc and Muscat grapes grown on decomposed granite soils on the Fairview farm. The grapes are carefully harvested by hand over a three-day period. Bunches are only individually picked once perfectly ripened. Harvesting takes place at approximately 22° Brix. Packed into small lug boxes, the grapes are transported to a well-ventilated shed and carefully laid out on straw lined drying racks. It takes 3-4 weeks for the grapes to dry to an almost raisin like state, by which time they have lost up to 75% of their moisture. The grapes are then pressed and allowed to ferment in stainless steel tanks.
