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.
The Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne and the Grenache Blanc for this blend were all sourced from the Fairview farm on the sunny slopes of Paarl Mountain, grown on decomposed granite soils. These varieties are all well suited for Paarl’s warm Mediterranean climate.
