While Fairview Viognier (pronounced ‘vee-own-yay’) is known for its honey and stone fruit flavours and typical spring blossom floral aromas, it’s also surprisingly versatile. And, let’s be honest: by the end of June, you’re probably going to need springtime in a glass.

Bright and gold in colour, you’ll enjoy a rich, complex palate with layers of waxy honeycomb, apricots and orange followed by a charming creamy finish.

Our favourite winter dish to sip it with is a Malay curry with delicate spice and dried fruits.
