Style Citrus and Zesty
The 2015 vintage was about two weeks earlier than normal. The hot and dry summer resulted in fully ripe, healthy grapes, which contributed to richer, more tropical styles of wine than in previous vintages. Harvest began with the Viognier on the 29th January and lasted until 6th February 2015.

The Viognier, Roussanne and Grenache Blanc grapes were de-stemmed, crushed and gently pressed. Only free run juice was used and the vineyard parcels were kept separate. The juice was cold fermented in stainless steel tanks and the individual components were left on their lees for six months prior to blending and bottling.

Bright and clear with flashes of green. This is a medium bodied wine with aromas of apricots, pear and white blossom on the nose. Lingering citrus flavours on the palate are complemented with a zesty acidity.

Country Of Origin: South Africa
Respected South African winery Fairview owner/vintner Charles Back has built what started as a single red blend named Goats do Roam into a full-fledged wine company offering a range of top-quality, blended wines widely available throughout the wine-drinking world. The Goats do Roam brand is, in fact, the single-biggest selling South African wine label in the United States. Fruit for the wines is sourced from vineyards in the Paarl, Malmesbury and Stellenbosch areas, where Back owns farms or buys fruit from selected wine growers. No matter what their origins, grapes are selected based on the basis of inherent fruit quality and flavor characteristics required for each respective blend in the range.

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. For all the light-hearted sense of fun evident in the labelling and branding of the Goats do Roam range, the wines themselves take a serious approach to quality. The style is modern, fruit-rich, with intelligent use of wood for either fermentation and/or maturation in small French and American oak barrels. The range is predominantly red, complemented by selected whites and a ros� and covering tastes from those that call for a wine with complexity and cellaring potential to those that require early drinking.
