Winemaker's Notes

Goats do Roam White is a blend of Chenin Blanc, Clairette Blanche, and
Riesling, as well as smaller amounts of Viognier and Grenache Blanc. The
grapes were hand harvested fully ripe, whole bunch pressed and cold
fermented in stainless steel tanks.
Winemakers Tasting Notes:
This full bodied unwooded wine shows considerable character, combining
the flavours and feel of our sun drenched Mediterranean climate with the
distinctive fruit-focused wine style of Fairview.
Colour: Golden straw.
Aroma: Tropical fruitiness, with apple, straw and spicy notes.
Palate: Aroma carries through onto the palate. Medium bodied mid-palate
with a firm, crisp finish.
Cellaring: Drink within two years of the vintage.
