Goats Do Roam 2005 (South Africa) [May. 28th, 2007|05:36 am]

Goats Do Roam has a cute label and a clever (made up) history to go with it, but unfortunately, it isn't that good. It's green peppery. It could be worse (it could be more green peppery) but it could be a lot better. It tastes like the vintners did everything they could with overripe grapes. It's familiar... I feel like I've tasted it before. At least when you're drinking it, you know it's wine. It's not berries or plums or chocolate or something poetic like silk. Nope, just pure fermented grapes with their skins here.

I do recommend checking out their website, if you think you can handle the puns. Ounce for ounce, this wine packs a great deal of charm for the money.

Ja, I didn't have much luck with it either.

I picked up a nice (looking) NZ Chardonnay. Non-oaked. Will provide a synopsis ASAP.
