FAIRVIEW WINERY 2013 GOATS DO ROAM RED
"Bright pink. Lively aromas of red berries, tangerine and white flowers, plus a hint of honey. Smooth and open-knit, with good breadth to its raspberry and cherry flavors, which are braced by gentle acidity. Supple and subtly sweet on the finish, with the red fruit note echoing." Josh Raynolds Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 87 points
|Wine maker notes
|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.\ The blend is heavy on the Shiraz and Pinotage, with Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Merlot, Carignan, Gamay and Cabernet added to give it a unique \Western Cape field blend\ style; a lovely patchwork quilt of grapes.
Most of the fruit comes from dry farmed old bush vines in and around Paarl and Malmesbury. A smidgen of oak seasoning is provided prior to blending the individual lots.
