Winemaker Notes

A blend of 78% Shiraz and 22% Pinotage.

The dominant variety is a rich, spicy Shiraz blended with a deep flavored Pinotage. The 2007 vintage shows intense fruit and I feel that the tannins have lovely soft structure.

Nose is subdued in its youth, but shows clove and liquorice hints. Medium bodied, with ripe fruit flavours. Elegant finish, with oak notes and red fruit following through.

"A blend of 78% Shiraz and 22% Pinotage, this is a serious wine despite the unserious name. It shows guts and structure with a winning combination of dark berry fruit and a notably meaty, mushroomy edge. There's a bit of oak showing along with the tannins, which are notable but certainly not too much for the lightly sweet fruit to counterbalance." 87 Points

Critical Acclaim

WE 87
Wine Enthusiast

Rich and ripe, this Shiraz/Pinotage blend start with savory spice and red berry aromas, followed by juicy, integrated black fruit, pepper and complex spice. Good minerality and structure with a friendly, easygoing appeal.

Goats do Roam, , South Africa
Goats do Roam
Respected South African winery Fairview owner/vintner Charles Back has built what started as a single red blend named Goats do Roam into a full-fledged wine company offering a range of top-quality, blended wines widely available throughout the wine-drinking world. The Goats do Roam brand is, in fact, the single-biggest selling South African wine label in the United States. Fruit for the wines is sourced from vineyards in the Paarl, Malmesbury and Stellenbosch areas, where Back owns farms or buys fruit from selected wine growers. No matter what their origins, grapes are selected based on the basis of inherent fruit quality and flavor characteristics required for each respective blend in the range.

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.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all wine

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
