The Beacon Shiraz 2014, Fairview

£26.95 per bottle

About this wine

Fairview’s Single Vineyard “The Beacon Shiraz” has a unique story to tell – at 33°44’ latitude 18°48’ longitude, trigonometric beacon 194 still rises above the ancient metamorphic shale it sits on – soil that has seen ocean beds and explosive volcanic magma – and soil in which Fairview’s intense dark Shiraz berries are grown on today.  Aromas of ripe plum, violet and cinnamon on the nose, whilst the palate is rich and full bodied with firm structure and complex flavours of fruit and spice. This wine has the potential to mature for 5 – 8 years and is a wonderful pairing with grilled lamb, grass-fed beef and venison.

    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."
