Goats Do Roam White 2021

R58.00

The legend goes that some errant members of Fairview’s long-established goatherd once escaped from their paddock into the Fairview vineyards after Charles Back’s young son Jason accidentally left the gate open. The little group happily roamed among the vineyards, showing rare discernment by selecting some of the ripest berries from the vines. Those berries have been used to make this white blend, a light bright green, medium bodied wine with aromas of apricots and pear and a zesty acidity.

 

Wine Info
Description

The Roussanne, Viognier, Marsanne and Grenache Blanc for this blend were all sourced from vineyards grown on the sunny slopes of Paarl Mountain on the Fairview farm, with a Grenache Blanc component from Darling also added to the blend. These varieties are all well suited for our warm  Mediterranean climate.

    The combination of grapes for this white blend, is excellent and as the wine farm indicates, it is a great alternative to sauvignon blanc. Beautiful light green colour, crisp and refreshing for lovely SA summer days. Love it
