Goats do Roam Red 2003
A deep, vibrant purple color with juicy, ripe fruit on the palate. The aroma is of ripe fruit and spice. The wine is super now. Enjoy over the next year or two.
"(a blend of shiraz, cinsaut, pinot noir, carignan and grenache, with bits of cabernet sauvignon and merlot; mostly from unirrigated bush vines.) Medium dark red. Slightly baked redfruit flavors of cherry and raspberry. Supple, sweet and very ripe, with good texture and a lightly peppery quality. Nicely chewy and fresh wine, finishing with light, slightly dry tannins. Very good value."
-International Wine Cellar
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.
