Our Goats Do Roam 2019 is a red blend which shows red berries, plums and mixed baking spice on the nose while the youthful palate is rich with generous berry fruit and spice, balanced with integrated oak nuances. The palate is smooth with firm tannin a long fresh finish.
The blend predominantly consists of Shiraz, Mourvedre, Durif, Grenache, Tempranillo, Cinsault and Pinotage. The Shiraz was harvested from trellised vineyards in the Paarl, Stellenbosch and Swartland regions. The juicy Grenache noir is from the Paarl. The Mourvèdre is from Paarl and Stellenbosch regions. The Petite Sirah, also known as Durif, and Tempranillo is grown side by side in decomposed granite soils grown in our trellised Paarl vineyards. The Cinsault is from bush vines up on the higher decomposed sites in Paarl. This year the goats roamed a little further and more varieties were included to make up for losses from the ongoing drought. These were included as minor components and without changing the style of the wine. All the grapes are 100% Fairtrade.
