GOATS DO ROAM RED 2011 GOATS DO ROAM RED 2011

Charles Back, the owner of Fairview, is also the man behind Goats do Roam, which was launched in 1999. Goats do Roam is rare in that it is an amusing and original proposition allied to wines of good quality and value for money.





VINEYARD
Syrah grapes were grown in trellised vineyards in Paarl on decomposed granite soils. Cinsault was from two older bush trained vineyards in Paarl and Agter-Paarl. Mourvedre fruit came from dry land bush trained vineyards in Swartland on koffieklip soils and the Grenache and Carignan were also from Swartland.


GRAPE VARIETIES
72% Syrah/Shiraz, 13% Cinsault, 7% Mourvedre, 7% Grenache/Garnacha

VINIFICATION
The grapes were harvested during February and March 2011.

The different varieties were destalked but not crushed and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel at 25-28 degrees centigrade using selected Rhone yeasts. After primary fermentation the wines were racked off and sent back to tanks for malolactic fermentation. This lasted 2 to 3 months. The wine was then sent to older barrels for approximately 7 months. No new wood is used.

TASTING NOTES
Bright ruby. Fresh berry aromas layered with spice and smoky notes. Medium weight with refreshing fruit acidity and juicy tannins. A pleasant wine with integrated flavours and a smooth finish.
