Fairview Sweet Red

R115.00 R95.83

A firm favourite to our farm visitors, our Sweet Red brings together two South African great loves, red wine and brandy. Using our mother block Petit Sirah grapes, the wine is fortified with brandy spirits and left to age in old French barrels. The result is a dense, sweet wine that smells like spiced Christmas cake and concludes with a warm velvety finish. Delicious.

Wine Info
Description

Petite Sirah [pe-teet-si-rah] (also known as Durif) is a natural crossing of Syrah and Peloursin, discovered by François Durif in the south of France in 1880. Its intense colour and good tannin structure make it an excellent blending partner. Today the variety is mostly grown in California and Australia. Petite Sirah was introduced to South Africa by Fairview Owner Charles Back after tasting it abroad. It thrives in our warm climate both in Paarl and in the Swartland.
