FAIRVIEW 2008 "THE BEACON" SHIRAZ

The Beacon Shiraz is produced using grapes from an Agter-Paarl farm owned by Willie Dreyer. It is a beautiful site and there are two blocks of vineyard that provide grapes to our cellar. A trellised block provides grapes used in our our standard label Fairview Shiraz. An untrellised block, grown on rough shale soils on a gently sloping mound, is where the fruit for The Beacon Shiraz is grown. These bush vines struggle through the rocky soil surrounding the trigonometric beacon that gives the wine its name. When asked for the simple reason why this block is selected for a single vineyard wine, our wine makers are very clear its all about the soil.
