Fairview Single Vineyard Selection Primo Pinotage 2019

Product information "Fairview Single Vineyard Selection Primo Pinotage 2019"
In a dark red hue, the Fairview Single Vineyard Selection Primo Pinotage shimmers in the glass. The grapes used for the complex red wine from South Africa's national grape come from a single vineyard and give the wine a wonderful aroma of raspberries, plums and vanilla. On the palate, the concentrated fruit notes are underpinned by liquorice and pleasant tannins. The Fairview Single Vineyard Selection Primo Pinotage matured for eighteen months in French oak and is an excellent choice with meat dishes or pasta. By the way, the Land Rover of owner Charles Back can be seen on the label. He likes to go on discovery tours with the car to look for new plots for viticulture. Charles Back also found the single vineyard that supplied the grapes for the Fairview Single Vineyard Selection Primo Pinotage on one of these tours.

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.
