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

Hot nose, fruity but hot throughout. A bit thin. Spicy finish. Cheap but ok.

Very complex nose with earth, leather, chocolate, smoke, pepper, spice, and dark fruit. Huge flavors on the palate with an acidic edge and ample earthiness. The body leans toward the lighter side and the tannins are fairly easy. Very concentrated. I was surprised at how bold the aromas and flavors in this wine were. This is the third wine I have tried from the Goats do Roam Wine Company and I have enjoyed them all.

Goats Do Roam South Africa Goats Do Roam is a dry medium bodied South African red from the Cape and is packed with soft-red-fruit flavors and has a spicy finish. This unusual blend of seven grapes creates an easy-drinking wine that still manages to maintain some complexity. This is an excellent well-rounded wine that tastes like it cost double the price. It goes perfectly with light meat dishes, stands up to spicy food, and is approachable enough to drink alone. Like the perfect dinner party guest, Goats Do Roam is easy going, happy with any food and witty to boot.Drink now.

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.

Wine Tasting NotesDark ruby red. Dark fruit, with complex spiciness and pepper aromas. Full fruit laden palate with good concentration and a rich finish. Subtle oaking elevates the combination of fruit and rich spice. Will drink well now, through to 2010.

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.
