Winemaker's Notes

The 2006 vintage was a warm vintage yielding ripe, full flavored wines. A delicious fruit forward Shiraz with cherry and plum flavors and additional layers of spice delivering a well balanced approachable wine. It will go great with all things BBQ, lamb kabobs, rotisserie chicken and meat based pizzas.

Part of the fruit is grown at Fairview on the south western slopes of Paarl Mountain. The Fairview Shiraz vineyards are primarily on decomposed granite soils, and have drip irrigation. The other components of the blend are from dry land vineyards in Agter-Paarl on deep Malmesbury shale soils, as well as two sites in Stellenbosch.

This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
