    Winemaker's Notes:

    Fairview was the first in South Africa to plant and bottle Viognier and have now been producing this wine for over 10 years. With gentle oaking and careful site selection, our winemakers look to emphasize the complex fruit flavors and fragrance that characterise Viognier.

    Critical Acclaim:

    I prefer the 2010 Viognier that has a very composed nose: nectarine, white peach and a hint of oyster shell in the background. The palate is well balanced with a light peach and nectarine entry, underneath which lies attractive grass clipping and lemongrass notes. With great length and precision, this is an impressive Viognier.

    The Wine Advocate

    A bright, crunchy style, displaying green apple, fig and green melon fruit flavors, with a fresh, unadorned finish. Drink now. 2,500 cases made
