Fairview's Goats do Roam Rose 2017 - DISCONTINUED

Pale rose colour, with hints of citrus, strawberries and floral aromas on the nose. Flavours of red berries, citrus and a dry zesty finish palate.

A very versatile food wine which complements wide range of dishes. We recommend this wine with sushi, salmon salad, grilled fish or chicken. We also recommend this wine with a Fairview cheese platter.
