Intense red in the glass. Plummy fruit on the nose with a hint of sweet raspberry and splashes of opulent spice. The Palate is complex and layered, revealing further fruit flavours and a rich mouthfeel. Spice lingers on the finish. The wine shows excellent potential.
The Shiraz is sourced from a number of sites. Some of the fruit is grown at Fairview on the south western slopes of Paarl Mountain. The Fairview Shiraz vineyards are primarily on decomposed granite soils, and have drip irrigation. The other components of the blend are from dry land vineyards in Agter-Paarl on deep Malmesbury shale Soils, from trellised vineyards in Stellenbosch and a small addition of Swartland fruit from unirrigated bushvines.
