Goats Do Roam Red

R50.00

Our Goats Do Roam 2018 is a red blend which shows red currant, plum and peppercorns 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.

Wine Info
Description

The Shiraz was harvested from trellised vineyards in the Paarl, Stellenbosch and Swartland regions. The juicy Grenache noir is from the Piekenierskloof, Paarl and Swartland vineyards. The Mourvèdre is primarily from dryland bushvines in the Swartland, with a small percentage from vineyards in Paarl. The Petite Sirah, also known as durif, is from decomposed granite soils grown in our trellised Paarl vineyards. The Carignan grapes are from dryland bushvines in the Swartland. The grapes were destalked and lightly crushed into stainless steel tanks. Each grape variety and respective vineyard was fermented separately. The must was inoculated with Rhône yeasts and pump-overs were done up to 4 times a day during fermentation. After alcoholic fermentation, the wines were racked to tanks and barrels for malolactic fermentation. The wine was then matured in both tanks and barrels prior to blending, stabilization and bottling.
