The 2009 Fairview Pinotage is a medium to full bodied, FRUITY to integrated wine, with intense aromas of black currant, fresh coffee fruit, toasted oak and faint coconut and vanilla. It has a nice structure with refined tannins (decant for 1 to 2 hours for the wine to excel) and a nice long finish. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90 pts - would be a recommended wine if it was still widely available. Tasted Jan/12.
