Fairview The Back Road Carignan 2009

The Fairview Winery is one of the most innovative and exciting in all South Africa. Carignan, one of Southern France’s richest and most charming grapes, has found an unexpected new home here under the careful attention of winemaking pioneer Charles Back. The winemaking expertise here has been recognised as real triumph. Jancis Robinson calls it “massive but delightful … a most unusual example of Carignan thriving in the New World.” It’s a superb BBQ red – rich, generous and full, but with real elegance and complexity. An exciting discovery – be sure to try it!
