This vintage is a blend of primarily Shiraz and Pinotage with Cinsaut, Mourvedre, Grenache, Merlot, Carignan, Gamay and Cabernet being used to achieve a style consistent with what Goats do Roam has become famous for. The wine is lightly oaked before being carefully blended and bottled.Colour: Vibrant brick red.Aroma: Ripe red fruit, with a fragrant lift, with liquorice and spice notes.Palate: Fruit follows through, with fragrant notes completing the medium bodied mouthfeel. Well integrated with a smooth finish.Cellaring: The wine is ready for drinking. Enjoy over the next year or two.

Vibrant ruby red colour. Cedar, anise and fleshy fruit on the nose. Medium bodied palate, but good length and structure carrying to a long finish. Blackberry fruit and supple tannins.Wine of Origin: Coastal

This red is medium-bodied with soft red fruit flavors and a pepperfy finish that could stand up to any charcuterie dish. Made in the style of a Côtes-du-Rhône but comes from South Africa.

Winemaker's Notes:

There’s no stopping Fairview owner/vintner Charles Back when his interest in a creative, entrepreneurial project is piqued. It all started with a suggestion by a wine buyer ... the man humorously suggested the vinification of a Rhône-style blend called "Goats do Roam". Back, already known for his panache with Shiraz and always looking for new styles of wine to woo adventurous and discerning consumers, took the ball and ran with it. Thus was born, in 1999, what was for the South African wine scene an innovative blend using Rhône varieties such as Shiraz, Cinsault, Carignan and Mourvèdre with a dash of local Pinotage, which Back had sourced from various vineyards (his own and others) around Paarl and Malmesbury. But, despite the humour of the packaging, the content of the bottle impressed with its quality, combining rich complexity with great drinkability. Since then, Goats do Roam has expanded into a fully fledged wine company with a range of nine whimsically named wines. This is a vibrant ruby red colour. Rich red fruit aromas, with cloves and spiciness. Rich medium bodied style, with subtle oak influences and soft tannins. Fruit flavours follow through onto the palate with supple tannins and a rounded finish.
