Interesting South African blend and reasonably priced. Fruit forward with ripe raspberry, lots of spice, and smooth oaky finish.

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

Dark ruby red. Berry nose. Spicy with fresh berries. Very drinkable. Holds up well with many foods or good on it's own. A very good any night wine.

This wine has a nice balance of earth, and fruit. You smell berry, a little smoke, and toasted nut. The fruit, and pepper is right up front on your palet, then it turns to cured meat, and spice. Very nice blend, and the price is a steal for this wine.

Fresh and open-knit, with red plum and cherry fruit backed by modest toast. A hint of tobacco on the finish. Drink now. 90,000 cases made.

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.

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.
