"This just oozes fruit - blackberries, plums and currants - but has firm tannins to keep it from getting too gushy. Lots of tar, smoke and
dark chocolate here too, with the fruit pumping through the finish, Shiraz with 5 percent Viognier. Drink now through 2005."
Rumblings of discord have been heard in the Fairview flock. Bearded and wise elders grumble of the demise of their position, as the frisky exuberance of the youthful members of the flock continue to capture hearts and headlines with their hugely successful Goats Do Roam range of wines. The council of Billy Goats convened to determine a strategy to create a wine befitting their status. An edict was issued from above. Go forth and find the finest fruit, or risk a roasting! And thus the challenge was raised to produce Goat Roti. Selecting grapes that include Shiraz, Viognier, Mourvedre, the elders have come - up with an intense wine with rich fruit, warm spice and a structure that begs cellaring for a number of years. The elders are pleased!
