Winemaker's Notes

Vibrant ruby red colour. Cedar, anise and fleshy fruit on the nose. Medium bodied palate, but good length and structure carrying to a long finish. Blackberry fruit and supple tannins.

A decade after the initial pun of Goats do Roam hit our shores we still get the quality. A force of nature in the South African wine business, Charles Back wants everyone to enjoy the word play on his Cote du Rhone appellation, but there is no joking about the quality. Recent repackaging has the varietals listed on the back label. This version is one of the best over the years. Very fresh and lively berry fruit with some nice richness and length. Great pizza and hamburger wine for every occasion.

This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
