This is the one! The original coffee/chocolate Pinotage now in its eighth great vintage. It befriends - It converts - It seduces
Roodeberg is South Africa's most celebrated red blend, recognized worldwide for its consistent quality for more than 50 years. Literally translated as "red mountain", it is named after the red hue of South Africa's Boland Mountains at sunset. Produced in Paarl, in the heart of the Cape Winelands, Roodeberg is a timeless Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot. Ripe berries on the nose, with hints of cinnamon spice and green pepper. Complex and well-structured on the palate, with firm tannins and blackberry and chocolate notes.
Hand selected grapes from a low producting old vineyard on a cool slope with no irrigation for natural concentration fermented in open tanks with plunging and pumping over. It matured 12 months in 100% American Oak barrels This wine is full bodied with a typical warm mouth feel, soft tannins, a long finish and spicy flavours. It is made and selected to mature for many years in the bottle. This style is to compliment venison, beef or all heavy cuisine and cheese.
One afternoon, at harvest time, my mischievous son Jason and his friend Justin let the goats out of their tower and sent them for a walkabout amongst the vines. As in the legend of the Yemeni goat herder, whose roaming flock first discovered the joys of coffee beans, our goats picked out the best and tastiest fruit. Their choice serves as our inspiration for this wine, blended from juicy, full flavoured varietals with a bouquet of red fruit and suble spice. Goats do Roam will bring joy to any occasion.
