Tasting Notes

Light yellow with green tinge , with intense aromas of litchi, stone fruit and lemon blossoms. An alluring full-bodied mouth feel filled with peach flavours following through on the palate. Well-balanced acidity and sweet floral hints that result in a refreshing finish.

Food Suggestions

Perfect with summer berries, a pear crumble or Pavlova. The delicate sweetness also pairs well with duck liver pate or foie gras.

Additional Information
Established in 1693, the Fairview cellar, with its spectacular view of Table Mountain, lies on the southwestern slopes of Paarl in the Cape of Good Hope. Fairview was purchased by my grandfather in 1937 and I am the third generation to make wine here. We have vineyards in the leading coastal grape producing areas, where geographic and climatic diversity allow us to craft a range of truly distinctive wines, which we complement with our award-winning artisanal cheeses. To Life!
