About this wine

Grown on the slopes of Paarl Mountain, Fairview Viognier is bright gold colour in the glass with honey, stone fruit and typical spring blossom floral aromas balanced with subtle of oak notes. Enjoy a rich complex palate with layers of waxy honeycomb, apricots and orange followed by a charming creamy finish.

One of the (many) gifts that Charles Back has brought to Cape wine was, and still is, Fairview Viognier. Planting the mother block of this French grape in 1994, Charles and team have nurtured this variety to bring you a gorgeously aromatic and refined wine. A must try!

FOOD RECOMMENDATION: Viognier is very flexible, working in a wide variety of seafood, roasted or grilled chicken, pork, spicy flavors and Asian cuisine. A Malay curry with delicate spice and dried fruits is particularly delicious when paired with Viognier.

    string(495) "The famed white variety of Condrieu in the Northern Rhône and in particular the ultra-rare wines of Château Grillet. A famously temperamental grape variety which, when it hits its stride, is one of the most spectacular around. Apricot and peach notes combine with wax and honey, the mouthfeel rich and generous with notes of candied mandarin. Excellent with or without oak maturation, Viognier is best opened relatively early in its life whilst the zing it holds in its youth is still vibrant."
