Pinotage is mostly harvested from bush vines, some of which are over 25 years old. This is supplemented by a small amount of fruit from a younger trellised vineyard at Fairview. The vineyards are at three sites, Malmesbury and Agter Paarl with their dry farmed vineyards on deep soils and the Paarl fruit grown on sandy soils. Colour: Vibrant purple red. Aroma: Spicy dark fruit flavours. Palate: Savoury, with ripe soft tannins and opulent fruit. Cellaring: The wine is drinking well now, but should improve over the next few years.

This wine was recommended to me while visitng Tucos, a great restaraunt in Davis, California. I was not disappointed. The Fairview Pinotage compares very favorably to much more expense Pinot Noirs from Oregon. Don't wait. Enjoy it now.
