Goats do Roam Goat-Roti 2005
Aroma: Ripe fruit and peppery aromas.
Palate: Juicy layered ripe fruit and silky tannins.
Cellaring: This wine is good now however it will benefit from at least 5 years in bottle.
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.
