Goats Do Roam Red 2020

(3 customer reviews)

R58.00

Our Goats Do Roam 2020 is a Rhône blend which shows typical aromas of blueberries, raspberry and plums with a touch of savoury spice. It has a youthful, juicy palate with layered generous berry fruit and pepper which is balanced with integrated oak nuances. The palate is smooth with fine tannin and a long fresh finish.

Wine Info
Description

This vintage the blend predominantly consists out of the traditional Rhône varieties Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvèdre. 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. Other varieties includes Petite Sirah, also known as Durif, and Tempranillo is grown side by side in decomposed granite soils from 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. These were included as minor components and without changing the style of the wine. All the grapes are 100% Fairtrade.

    An excellent value, for the money. Blending 6 different grapes gives a complex flavor, at a reasonable price. Definitively recommend.
