Fairview Tannat

Fairview Tannat

R115.00

Forever pushing the envelope of winemaking, we bring South Africans more never before seen plantings, such as Tannat. Historically grown in the Basque region of France, today Tannat is one of the most prominent grapes grown in Uruguay. Having rooted itself just as comfortably in our local soils, this red shows off abundant yet elegant tannins and spiced dark fruits on the nose.

Wine Info
Description

The Tannat grapes were destemmed, lightly crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Gentle pump-overs were done three times a day.  Just before the end of alcoholic fermentation, the wine was pressed off the skins to prevent too much tannin being extracted and to ensure the fruit flavours were preserved. The wine was transferred to 20% new French oak barrels and 80% 2nd and 3rd fill French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and maturation, where it spent 12 months in barrel before bottling.
