Pinotage 2009 - Fairview: Pinotage 2009 - Rotwein von Fairview WinesWeil nach der fantastischen Saison bei der Ernte auch einige überreife Trauben gelesen wurden, zeigt der Fairview Pinotage 2009ganz besonders üppige Fruchtaromen. Der Fassausbau wurde feinabgestimmt auf diese betonten Fruchtaromen von Brombeeren und Pflaumenund wird spürbar durch einen sehr subtilen Eichencharakter. Dies wirdunterstützt von Karamell- und Cappuccinoaromen und einem angenehmen,langen Nachhall mit gut integrierter Gerbsäure. Dieser Rotwein passt sehr gut zu süßlich mariniertem Pferde-, Straußen- oder Känguru-Fleisch.Weingut: Fairview WinesLand: SüdafrikaRegion: PaarlRebsorte: PinotageInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,75 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5,25 g/lRestsüße: 3,5 g/lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18 °CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (10 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 3 -5 Jahre ab Jahrgang Rotwein > Südafrika > Paarl - Franschhoek

Winemaker's Notes:

The home of Fairview wines is a 300ha farm on the south-west-facing slopes of Paarl Mountain, a granite rock outcrop in the heart of the Paarl wine district, viticulturally among the most historic and influential areas of the Cape winelands. Pinotage was primarily harvested from bush vines in Malmesbury and Agter-Paarl, some of which are over 25 years old. These older vineyards are dry farmed and the vines grow on deep soils. This is supplemented by fruit from an irrigated, younger, trellised vineyard at Fairview. This wine is a deep inky colour, with bold aromas of mocha and caramel. Aromas of deep and fleshy fruit, with ripe plums and blackberries. Medium to full bodied, with lovely richness and sweet fruit on the finish. Tannins give lovely structure and oaking is well handled so as not to dominate the fruit.
