This spicy blend of Tempranillo,
Grenache and Carignane comes from
one of South Africa’s leading estates.
What You Need To Know
Fairview makes some of South
Africa’s best wines—especially its smoky Cyril Back Shiraz—but
that doesn’t stop owner Charles Back and winemaker Anthony
de Jager from constant experimentation. Their Extraño blend is
a case in point. It’s based on Tempranillo, a Spanish variety that
yields earthy, spicy, cherry-inflected reds. Tempranillo is the
flagship variety of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions, but
few have bothered to investigate its potential in South Africa.
Back planted a few acres of the variety on Fairview’s Paarl estate,
located about 45 minutes inland from Cape Town, in 2006. The
2010 is the first harvest from these young vines. Grenache and
Carignane add spice and freshness to the blend.
Savory and fruity, with black
cherry and vanilla notes.
Meaty black cherry and spice
flavors fill out the polished
Cellar temperature—the bottle should be
cool to the touch.
Rare steaks, thick chops,
roasts and stews of red meat,
pork or game.
