A sumptuous upfront nose of mocha & coffee beans leads to an invitingly rich palate of wild berry and dark chocolate. Enjoy with grilled and barbecued meats. Delicious with smoked pork ribs.
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.
Heavy savoury oak aromas combined with pencil shavings and hints of dark fruits, plum and cassis. This wine shows great structure and balance. Initial Cabernet Sauvignon characteristics are followed up with a spicy finish from the Shiraz. With great tannin structure and a strong backbone this wine has excellent ageing potential.
This wine is produced by the La Motte Cellar, historic landmark in the Franschhoek Valley, home to South Africa's gourmet capital. The style reflects old-world traditions skilfully harmonized with new-world intensity.
Carefully selected grapes from different vineyards have produced pepper, spice and berry fruit flavours, typical of this varietal. A firm structure, with a long finish. Perfect with roasts and spicy plates.
