This Shiraz has plums and spice on the palate with an undertone of bruléed sugar, gentle soft tannins and a creamy aftertaste. Good on its own or with a rump or sirloin steak.
Offering rich black cherry and raspberry flavours and floral notes, fine tannins and a mouth filling lingering complexity. Overgaauw is a wine estate of distinction situated on south facing slopes overlooking the Stellenbosch Valley. Deep granite soils and cool sea breezes enable the ideal cultivation of noble grape varieties. The resultant wines are nurtured to perfection by the inherited passion and experience of four generations of Van Velden Winemakers.
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.
