Fairview Goats do Roam 2012

2012 Fairview Goats do RoamMichael Dresser chose this South African red as his wine of the week in the Baltimore Sun.

He said: “It seemed fitting to toast Nelson Mandela with a South African wine. In addition to everything else he accomplished, Mandela cleared the way for South Africa to emerge as a formidable presence on the world wine market. Despite its long wine history and natural advantages, the quality of South African wine under apartheid was dreadful — as shown by the first imports after the fall of the old regime. But within a few years of Mandela’s rise to power, we began to see good, solid wines like this one coming out of that country. This is a tasty, chunky, solid Cotes-du-Rhone style red blend (hence the pun name) at a very affordable price. It’s a very minor but worthy tribute to his legacy.”
