Winemaker's Notes:

With the rise to prominence of the Goats do Roam Family, challengers to their position have emerged on many fronts. Don Goatti, in true Sicilian tradition, fiercely protects the herd, their loyal customers and the winemaking secrets of the family. While few in the family know the final blend, The Goatfather always includes a selection of Italian varietals, maintaining their omertá over quality and consistency through the family of wines.Sweet, currant fruit on the nose, with tobacco and cedar. Lighter medium bodied style underpinned by food-friendly acidity courtesy of the Barbera. Supple tannins and oak notes come through on the 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.

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.

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.

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.

Bright red-ruby. High-toned aromas of currant, leather and mint. Soft and pliant, with slightly diffuse but creamy flavors of red berries, medicinal cherry and fresh herbs. Finishes with soft tannins. The Southern Hemisphere's answer to La Vieille Ferme?

South Africa's Western Cape is known for producing fresh, value-focused wine year after year. This is no exception. Soft and light, the wine offers jammy cherries, high-toned red fruits and delicate vanilla tones.

Dark red. Expressive aromas of pepper and smoked meat. Supple, sweet and broad but not heavy, with dark berry and pepper flavors showing decent lift. Finishes with a light dusting of tannins.

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.
