This is a dry fruity wine is an excellent value for under $10.00. To be truthful I got this wine because of the label of "Goats Do Roam" but I was happily surprised. The white wine consists of 68 percent Viognier grapes, 17 percent Roussanne for velvety goodness and 15 percent Grenache blanc. A nice blended wine.

This full-bodied, unwooded wine shows considerable character, combining the flavors and feel of a sun-drenched Meditteranean climate with the distinctive, fruit-focused wine style of Fairview.

This vibrant pale golden colored wine blended of 54% Viognier, 40% Grenache Blanc, and 6% Roussanne provides rich inviting aromas of peach, pear, citrus and floral fragrances. Melon and ripe apricot flavors burst with fresh acidity on the palate leading to a crisp refreshing finish with hints of honeysuckle.

This blend of Crouchen, Clairette and Grenache Blancs contains a small dose of Muscat de Frontignan. The herby lemon aromas are filled out on the palate with grapefruit, a hint of pineapple and orange peel.

Fresh and lively, with peach, anise and floral flavors, and a round, juicy texture. Drink now.

The sweet, ripe peach and gingersnap flavors end with a light touch; for grilled fish.

Soft and open, showing pretty flavors of peach, anise and honeysuckle, with a rounded finish. Very friendly. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

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 white blend is a vibrant, pale golden colour with peach and tropical aromas. Melon and ripe apricot flavours, with fresh acidity and a crisp finish.
