This full-bodied, unwooded wine shows considerable character, combining the flavors and feel of a sun-drenched Meditteranean climate with the distinctive, fruit-focused wine style of Fairview.
Light and crisp, with a mix of peach, lime and floral notes, and a clean finish. Crouchen Blanc, Clairette Blanc, Grenache Blanc and Muscat de Frontignan. Drink now.
This blend of Crouchen, Clairette and Grenache Blancs contains a small dose of Muscat de Frontignan. The herby lemon aromas are filled out on the palate with grapefruit, a hint of pineapple and orange peel.
This vibrant pale golden colored wine blended of 54% Viognier, 40% Grenache Blanc, and 6% Roussanne provides rich inviting aromas of peach, pear, citrus and floral fragrances. Melon and ripe apricot flavors burst with fresh acidity on the palate leading to a crisp refreshing finish with hints of honeysuckle.
Juicy, with tasty green apple and melon fruit offset by a verbena note that adds some cut to the finish. Drink now.
Fresh and light, with easygoing peach and melon notes. Chenin Blanc, Clairette, Riesling, Viognier and Grenache Blanc. Drink now.
Soft and open, showing pretty flavors of peach, anise and honeysuckle, with a rounded finish. Very friendly. Drink now.
There’s no stopping Fairview owner/vintner Charles Back when his interest in a creative, entrepreneurial project is piqued. It all started with a suggestion by a wine buyer ... the man humorously suggested the vinification of a Rhône-style blend called "Goats do Roam". Back, already known for his panache with Shiraz and always looking for new styles of wine to woo adventurous and discerning consumers, took the ball and ran with it. Thus was born, in 1999, what was for the South African wine scene an innovative blend using Rhône varieties such as Shiraz, Cinsault, Carignan and Mourvèdre with a dash of local Pinotage, which Back had sourced from various vineyards (his own and others) around Paarl and Malmesbury. But, despite the humour of the packaging, the content of the bottle impressed with its quality, combining rich complexity with great drinkability. Since then, Goats do Roam has expanded into a fully fledged wine company with a range of nine whimsically named wines. This 2010 Rhone-style white blend has intense aromas of soft pear and litchi accompanied by floral notes and coconut hints. It has a rounded palate which shows rich apricot and marzipan with a slight oily texture on the finish, balanced well by fruit-driven freshness.
