The Cape Granite White is pale yellow in colour with citrus, peach and melon notes on the nose. The palate shows subtle oak flavours, orange peel and melon. This well structured wine has an aging potential of 8 years or more.
Established in 1693, the Fairview Estate is nestled on the south western slopes of Paarl Mountain, just 40 minutes from Cape Town. Africa’s largest Granite outcrop, Paarl Rock gives a panoramic view of Fairview Estate and the surrounding Cape vineyards. This pearlescent rock formed over 500 million years ago providing the soils on the upper slopes of our farm. This blend from Granite offers a true sense of Fairview Estate.
