Fairview Tibshraeny Family Blend Red 2014
This blend originates from the maritime vineyards of Darling with aromas of spiced cranberry and liquorice notes on the nose. A well structure palate with dark fruit flavours. Perfect to pair with a hearty meal or to enjoy on its own.
The grapes were machine harvested early in the morning and delivered to the cellar, where they were destemmed and gently crushed into stainless steel tanks for fermentation. Pump overs were done regularly during fermentation, after which the wines were pressed off the skins and racked into French oak barrel for malolactic fermentation. The wine was matured for 14 months in French oak barrels, 25% being new oak. The best barrels were selected and blended prior to a light filtration and bottling.
