Fairview Sauvignon Blanc 2008

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. Sauvignon Blanc was harvested from two vineyard sites in the Darling and Swartland areas. The various parcels of fruit were picked at between 22.3° and 24.6° balling, over a period of 3 weeks. The Swartland vineyard is on shale soils and the Darling vineyards on deep red oakleaf soils. This wine is a pale straw colour. It has punchy green fig aromas with a hint of flintiness on the nose. Capsicum flavours are balanced by riper fruit which comes through on the palate, creating fullness and leading to a well balanced finish.
