Fairview Goatsroam Red ' 2008
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.
External Reviews for Fairview Goatsroam Red '
The fantastic color of this wine is a deep, vibrant purple, while the nose displays ripe juicy red fruits and enticing spice. The palate is chock full of juicy, jammy red fruits. The perfect match for your next barbecue - serve it with barbecued hamburgers and herb grilled steak.
The 2000 Goats Do Roam Red, a blend of 33% Pinot Noir, 22% Shiraz, 13% Cinsault, 13% Grenache, 10% Carignan, 5% Gamay Noir, and 4% Mourvedre, exhibits a beautiful cherry, raspberry, and blackberry nose. Light to medium-bodied, supple, and easy to drink, this is a juicy, spicy cherry and pepper-flavored wine. It is expressive, thirst-quenching, and delicious. Drink it over the next two years. This wine is a superb value.
Zesty, medium-bodied red with raspberry, black pepper and plum flavors. Juicy ripe fruit and fresh acidity make this an ideal wine for pairing with a cheese course.
The grapes were harvested from vineyards in Paarl, Pedeberg and Malmesbury. The grapes are mostly sourced from dry-farmed old bush vines. These are mostly vineyards with small cropping levels. The resulting wine has considerable concentration.

Medium dark red. Slightly baked red fruit flavors of cherry and raspberry. Supple, sweet and very ripe, with good texture and a lightly peppery quality. Nicely chewy and fresh wine, finishing with light, slightly dry tannins. Very good value.
As a wandering Capricorn, I have not yet been led to South Africa where this goat hails from, but I suggest you imagine yourself on a new adventure, taking risks, and experiencing life! Look through the beautiful glass of garnet before you. Smell the cherry and currant. Is there a hint of something else inside? The first sip reveals a light texture followed by an intense rush of flavor, ending unexpectedly dry. Your horoscope reads, "Discoveries lead to simple pleasures under $10."
