Fairview Mourvèdre

R115.00

If you love Cabernet Sauvignon then you should sit up and listen to Mourvèdre. This full-bodied and rustic wine that originated in Spain is very well suited to the warm slopes of Paarl, producing vanilla and dark cherry aromas and a savoury, well integrated palate.

Description

The fruit was harvested at 25,5 degrees balling, destalked and lightly crushed. The juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks, with three to four aerated pump-overs daily. After fermentation, the wine was racked into barrels (10% new French oak and the remaining in 2nd and 3rd fill French oak) for malolactic fermentation. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was racked and returned to barrels for a total of 10 months of maturation prior to blending the Paarl and Stellenbosch Mourvedre.
