I like to have this wine when I'm eating beef curry. Horrible, I know.
Good value. An Alamo house wine... Spicy earthy juicy hint of barnyard.
External Reviews for Fairview Goatsroam Red '
Round, with juicy red cherry and raspberry notes, followed by nice pebble and pepper hints on the finish. Shiraz, Pinotage, Cinsault, Mourvédre, Grenache and Carignane. Drink now.
Light and easygoing, with cherry jam and high-toned vanilla notes. Clean and forward. Drink now.
This red blend offers appealing, integrated aromas and flavors of red cherry, plum and pepper. Full in the mouth and displaying smooth tannins, the wine's layered character will pair well with richer meat dishes.
Fresh and open-knit, with red plum and cherry fruit backed by modest toast. A hint of tobacco on the finish. Drink now.
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.
Shows an inviting mix of white pepper, violet and roasted plum fruit, with a dash of licorice on the finish. Drink now.
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 Shiraz / Pinotage blend's nose is subdued in its youth, but shows clove and liquorice hints. It is medium bodied, with ripe fruit flavours. Elegant finish, with oak notes and red fruit following through.
