Goatshed Extraño Spanish Dinner at Fairview Wine and Cheese

28 June 2019 l Arrival time 18h30 – 19h00 l Dinner 19h00 – 22h00

There is a Extraño (stranger in Spanish) in the Cape’s vineyards, named Tempranillo. Originally from Spain, Tempranillo now grows in local soils and produces grapes of exceptional quality. We’ve carefully integrated fellow Spaniards Grenache and Carignan – who add spice, fruit and freshness – to help temper this slightly rustic grape variety’s temperamental streak.

Since its release, this wine has been causing waves throughout our Tasting Room, becoming a firm best-seller thanks to its consistent taste, beautiful label and value-for-money. In fact, Extraño was one of our most awarded wines for 2017, receiving a 4.5 star Platter rating, a 2017 National Wine Challenge Top 100 award, and a 90 point score at the Winemag Signature Red Blend Report Awards 2017 and a Double Gold – NWC/Top 100 South African Wine Awards 2018!

Chef SJ Nel and the Goatshed team crafted a carefully curated menu that will please all palates, while harking back to Catalan-inspired flavours.
