Goats Do Roam White

Goats Do Roam White

R52.00

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 Viognier, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and some of the Chenin Blanc for this blend was sourced from the Fairview farm on the slopes of Paarl Mountain, grown on decomposed granite soils. The majority of the Grenache blanc is sourced from our vineyards in Darling. The Viognier, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Chenin Blanc grapes were picked between 22 and 23.5°Brix. Next, the fruit was destalked and crushed and then gently pressed. Only free run juice was used and the vineyard parcels were kept separate. The juice was cold fermented in stainless steel tanks and the individual components were left on their lees prior to blending and bottling.
