Shiraz 2013, Fairview

£13.95 per bottle

About this wine

The 2013 Fairview Shiraz displays pepper spice on the nose with red berry fruit whilst the palate reveals plum fruits with a touch of white pepper, a rich mouthfeel and well integrated bold tannins.  Partnering well with beef fillet, lamb or a beautiful rib-eye, the 2013 vintage is very expressive and spicy and should mature well over the next 5-8 years.  The wine is from a selection of the best parcels of Shiraz sourced from a special selection of Fairview’s vineyards, predominantly on the south western slopes of Paarl Mountain with complimentary components of the blend from dryland vineyards in Agter-Paarl , dryland vineyards in Swartland and from our their cooler Atlantic vineyards in Darling.

    string(832) "Also known as Syrah, Shiraz was the variety which introduced the world to the concentrated and masculine wines of 1990s’ Australia. Here in the Barossa Valley, Langhorne Creek, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale it produces wines of great density and richness. In South Africa there tends to be more structure and freshness with earthy tannins. It is a variety which alters in the bottle very much as a result of the individual winemaker’s philosophy, as well as reflecting the unique terroir of the estates. Great with oak, it offers lavender, kirsch, black cherry and cured meat aromas and flavours. In its native Northern Rhône it is famous for the wines of Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie, whilst in the New World can lay claim to providing Australia with its two most famous wines; Henschke’s Hill of Grace and Penfold’s Grange."
