Goats do Roam is a South African wine company, based in the Paarl region of the Cape winelands. Founded in 1999 by Fairview owner Charles Back, the company's wines continue to be produced at the Fairview cellar, under the guidance of Back's experienced team. The winemaking focus is on blended styles, incorporating grapes from vineyards in a number of winemaking regions. Initially inspired by the roaming Saanen goats on the Fairview farm, the Goats do Roam winemakers draw inspiration from various regions while still aiming to express a truly South African wine style. The range of wines has been widely acclaimed for its excellent value and consistent quality as well as the brands innovative, quirky approach to the market. After enjoying early success in the US market, the wines of the Goats do Roam Wine Company are now available in many parts of the world. The goats do roam! Following the careful selection of fine fruit from the top vineyards in the area, the grapes used in our Goats do Roam wines are transported to the Fairview cellar in Paarl, where the wines are produced and bottled. We harvest from the last week in January through to late March. During this period our modern, well-equipped Winery processes over 1500 tons of grapes. Modern wine making techniques coupled to traditional care enable us to depict both the varietal character and terroir of our vines. Read less

Fresh, fruity and with a touch of floral sweetness, this roseacute; is a no-brainer choice for grilled chicken, seafood salads and spicy cuisine. On the nose, strawberry and spice, and on the palate, refreshing fruit flavors entice.

Fresh and clean, with strawberry and cherry flavors kept honest by a pleasant bitter note on the finish. Made from Cinsault, Grenache, Carignane and others. Drink now.

Has hints of wood spice and earth to go with its cherry and cola notes. A touch rustic for a roseacute;, but still good. Cinsault, Grenache, Carignan and others. Drink now.

Throw off the goat and bring out the pink wine! Blue skies and warm days are the perfect appetizers for this dry roseacute; blend. Itrsquo;s produced in South Africa, using traditional French varietals usually associated with the Cocirc;tes du Rhocirc;ne region (these are all the clues you need to decipher the strange name). Honeydew and cherry aromas; juicy red raspberry fruit carries the wine through to a soft, pie-spice finish.

Deep, bright pink. Pungent black raspberry and cherry on the nose, with subtle floral and mineral qualities adding complexity. Juicy red berry flavors pick up tangerine and anise with air, as well as a sneaky sweetness. Fleshy and round but dry, with decent finishing cling and length. Dry enough to work as an aperitif but sufficiently full-flavored to handle richer foods, or cheeses.

Produced from an ever-changing meacute;lange of grapes, this South African beauty is darker in color than most roseacute;s, heralding its slightly more full-bodied flavor profile. Bone-dry and medium-bodied, therersquo;s a haunting aftertaste of very ripe strawberry that lingers nicely on the crisp finish.
