Fairview Wine Estate Shiraz Jakkalsfontein South Africa South Africa Shiraz Or Syrah S 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Fairview is situated on the lower slopes of Mt. Paarl, which is more sheltered from the moderating maritime influence than nearby Stellenbosch. Fairview has been planted with vines since 1699, when it was known by the name of Bloemkwoolfontein (Cauliflower Mountain). Fortunately, its name was changed to Fairview by an English owner at the beginning of the 20th century. The property was bought by the grandfather of current owner, Charles Back, in 1937, and was subsequently run by his father, Cyril. Charles has run it for the past 25 years. This wine is all about fruit - bursts of plums and mulberries with touches of spicy cloves and liquorice. On the palate explosive berry character leads to a long and concentrated, spicy finish.
