    Winemaker's Notes:

    Shiraz is sourced from a number of sites. Some 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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very toasty with dominant vanilla and spice aromas this also has lots of dark crushed boysenberry and raspberry flavor chocolate and pudding hints and firm tannins embedded in the muscular finish. Solid modern style that isn't just jammy. Drink now through 2005.
