Fairview Limited Release Cyril Back 2018

Product information "Fairview Limited Release Cyril Back 2018"
For the Fairview Limited Release Cyril Back, winemaker Anthony de Jager selected only the six best barrels of the vintage. In addition, the grapes for the estate's flagship wine come from Fairview's best sites and deliver a red wine that flows into the glass in a dark red hue. The intense scent of dark fruits such as blueberries and plums pours into the nose. Nuances of lavender add a spicy component to the blend of Shiraz (69%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (31%). On the palate, the Fairview Limited Release Cyril Back is beautifully full-bodied with notes of oak and stewed berries. The good tannin structure and a fresh acidity make the enjoyment experience of the red wine, which was matured for 30 months in French oak, perfect. Therefore, the red wine with a strong character, which is dedicated to the father of owner Charles Back, is a delight for the palate on its own, but it also goes perfectly with aromatic dishes with dark meat or game.

The Fairview Winery Combines Tradition and Innovation

Fairview was one of the first wineries in South Africa and was founded in Paarl at the foot of Paarl Mountain in 1693. The first Fairview wine was produced six years later. In 1937, the estate was purchased by the Back family and restored. Today it is run by the third generation, by Charles Back – who is always on the lookout for exciting terroir for unique wine creations. Charles Back attaches great importance to sustainable winegrowing, so that the grapes can mature optimally and produce innovative Fairview wines.

The Mascot of Fairview is the Goat

Besides good wine, Fairview has another passion. Land not suitable for viticulture is used as pasture for the goats of Fairview. In addition to wine, Fairview Goats Cheese has been a delicacy on the estate since 1980. But not only the wine and the delicious cheese attract tourists to the winery. The animals themselves are an attraction as well, especially the young animals get young and old alike excited every year. The connection to the animals is reflected in the logo of the winery. The Fairview Goat Tower, the home of the goats, is depicted on it.

Fairviews Great Variety of Wines

The majority of the 300 hectares of vineyards is cultivated with red grape varieties. The noble red products are the flagship of Fairview. Irrespective of this, the estate is particularly diverse in its wine production. In addition to the classic South African grape varieties such as Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinotage, the estate also produces exotic varieties such as Malbec and Carignan. Thus, the estate offers a great variety of wines and innovative creations, paired with a long tradition. Fairview's team of winemakers always succeeds in astonishing the wine lover.
