This vintage of Fairview's much loved fortified red dessert wine is made using Shiraz. It has rich spicy fruit flavours and is a perfect partner to Fairview's range of blue cheeses.


29 February 2008


Sourced from a vineyard in the Agter-Paarl, Shiraz was harvested ripe at 27.7 degrees balling. The bunches were destalked and crushed and the juice was fermented until the balling was around 18 degrees. At this time the alcohol content was approximately 4.5. Fermentation lasted six days, during which time we try to get the maximum extraction and colour from the skins. The wine was pressed off, and was fortified with five year old brandy spirits. The wine was transferred to used French and American oak barrels and matured for approximately 12 months, before blending and bottling.


Plum and black cherry aromas with liquorice and spice. Lively sweetness on the palate, with a long finish showing sweet brambly fruit.
