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 and from dryland, trellised vineyards in Swartland.
Intense red in the glass. Plummy fruit on the nose with a hint of sweet raspberry and red fruit. The palate reveals further red fruit flavours with a touch of white pepper and a rich mouthfeel with well integrated tannins.
