The Goatfather 2015

Bright red colour in glass, with red cherries, vanilla and hints of spice on the nose. The palate is medium bodied with red fruit flavours and a fresh finish.

Distinctive and full of breed, this is perfect with meat dishes (particularly game), roasted vegetables and Italian classics (of course!) such as lasagna and pizza

Established in 1693, Fairview cellar with its spectacular view of Table Mountain lies on the southwestern slopes of Paarl at the Cape of Good Hope. My grandfather purchased Fairview in 1937 and I am the third generation of my family to make wine here. We have vineyards in the leading coastal grape producing areas, where geographic and climatic diversity allows us to craft a range of truly distinctive wines, complemented by Fairview’s range of award winning artisanal cheeses.

To Life!

in the vineyard : Don Goatti’s personal selection comprises of Sangiovese from Darling, Barbera from Swartland region, Cabernet Sauvignon from Stellenbosch, and Nebbiolo from Paarl.

in the cellar : After being de-stalked and lightly crushed, the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks. After malolactic fermentation the various components were sent to 225l barrels for 14 months. The wine was matured in a selection of French and American oak, mainly 2nd to 4th fill. The components were kept separate for maturation and then blended to achieve the style that Don Goatti is looking for. The wine was lightly filtered before bottling.
