Fairview Barrel-aged Pinotage

Tasting note

Fairview has a reputation for consistent quality across a range of innovative styles, using both classic and unusual varieties.

In 2014, the owner, Charles Back received a 'Lifetime Achievement Award' from the International Wine Challenge. Pinotage is a classic South African variety and originates from a 1925 cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsault (known as Hermitage in South Africa).

The 2016 harvest brought Fairview healthy, concentrated grapes to produce a top-quality wine.

Having spent ten months in 15% new French and American oak barrels, it has bright ruby red colour with cranberries, violets and plum aromas with a hint of vanilla on the palate. The elegant flavours of fresh red fruit and clove spice has a firm tannin finish.
