SWEET RED, FAIRVIEW, PAARL
Sweets for my sweet...
Tastes like: Christmas cake. Dried fruits. Demerara sugar. Sweet. Full bodied. Velvety.
Fairview certainly don’t do things by halves! This full bodied sweet red wine combines two of our favourite things; 75cl of ripe fruit fortified with South African brandy.
This canny bottle was a recommendation for a customer who visited the farm, where this luscious, liquid dessert is a firm favourite.
Petit Sirah grapes from the mother block plots are fortified and then the wine matures in old oak barrels until rounded and lipsmackingly velvety.

I first tasted Fairview Sweet Red at the winery in Stellenbosch and I fell in love with it. I think the description written above by Chilled and Tanin says it all. One word of warning though, if you order a case thinking it will last for a while - it won't. So order two.
