Goats do Roam Goat-Roti 2002
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!
The grapes are vinified in Fairview’s cellar in Paarl by Charles Back and resident winemaker Anthony de Jager, also responsible for the Fairview range. For all the light-hearted sense of fun evident in the labelling and branding of the Goats do Roam range, the wines themselves take a serious approach to quality. The style is modern, fruit-rich, with intelligent use of wood for either fermentation and/or maturation in small French and American oak barrels. The range is predominantly red, complemented by selected whites and a rosé and covering tastes from those that call for a wine with complexity and cellaring potential to those that require early drinking.
