With the maturation of our Barbera vineyards, we have decided to introduce this varietal under our standard Fairview label. A combination of grapes from Paarl and the Swartland regions.


The grapes for this wine are sourced from two sites.
Barbera is grown on one of the highest vineyards at Fairview, 250m above sea level near the farm's original manor house. The soils are decomposed granite and the vineyard is trellised. This Barbera vineyard was planted in 2001 and receives supplementary drip irrigation.
The second site is on the farm Amoskuil, in Malmesbury. It is a dryland bushvine vineyard planted on koffieklip soils, planted in 2000.

HARVEST DATE: 20 February 2009 (Malmesbury) and 23 February 2009 (Paarl)


Paarl grapes were hand harvested at 26.2 degrees balling. The Swartland grapes were harvested at 25.8 degrees balling.
The grapes were cold soaked in stainless steel tanks for 48 hours and then allowed to warm up and inoculated with BM45 yeast. Fermentation took place in tank and lasted approximately ten days before being pressed and sent to older French and American oak barrels for malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked off and sent back to older barrels for a further 12 months.


Upfront dark fruit on the nose with a note of smoked meat and tobacco. Medium bodied but fleshy, with juicy plums on the palate. Integrated tannin and well-balanced acidity leading to a finish of cocoa and rich fruit.
