Fairview Paarl Grenache

R111.00 R75.00

Our Fairview Paarl Grenache is grown right here on Fairview, on one of the steepest hills in the vineyard (which just happens to have one of the best views on the farm). Our Grenache grapes must enjoy this stunning vantage point, because the juice they produce is some of our finest Grenache – juicy, beautifully perfumend and light, encouraging glass after glass!

Description

The fruit was hand-harvested in the early morning and brought to the cellar where the grapes were hand-sorted. The grapes were then allowed to cold soak for two days before fermentation was initiated in foudre (open-top French oak barrels). Thereafter, the grapes were punched down three times a day with one aeration if needed in the form of délestage. After the peak of fermentation, the wine was only pumped over once a day until the fermentation finished. The wine was basket pressed and transferred to older French oak for malolactic fermentation and maturation for a further 15 months before a light filtration and bottling.
