Known for championing this proudly indigenous grape, Fairview tells the story of Pinotage by proving the great heights that the variety can reach through Primo. Our accolade-winning Primo is brimming with ripe, dark fruits on the nose, elegant tannins and a lengthy, cigar box finish.

*Limited stock available.
The grapes were hand-harvested at 24.5° brix. Next, the bunches were hand-picked, destalked
and hand-sorted to remove raisins and green stems. Fermentation took place in open-top
French oak fermenters (foudre) and manual punch downs (pigeage) were done twice a day.
Once alcoholic fermentation was completed, the wine was basket pressed and transferred to
French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation, with 60% of the barrels being new oak. In
total, the wine spent 20 months maturing in oak barrels.
