Joostenberg Estate ‘Fairhead’ 2021

R190.00

A unique blend comprised of all the white varieties planted on Joostenberg Estate and represents a “snapshot” of the vintage and property.
Named after former Joostenberg matriarch and gardener extraordinaire, Gillian (née Fairhead) Myburgh.

Chenin Blanc 54%, Roussanne 23%, Viognier 13%, Alvarinho 10%

Fermented in terracota amphora (60%) and seasoned oak barrels (40%) and aged for 10 months.

Christian Eedes: “A compelling nose showing pear, white peach and citrus with notes of hay, fynbos and spice in the background. The palate is well balanced with good fruit concentration, bright acidity and a savoury finish. An elegant wine that should only gain from time in bottle. 91/100.”

Tyrrel & Anette Myburgh Tyrrel and Anette are the 5th generation of Myburghs on the Joostenberg farm in Paarl. They strongly believe in the fundamental importance of origin. This manifests itself in the vineyards by farming organically and often without irrigation. The winemaking philosophy avoids obtrusion as much as they deem is possible without compromising quality.
