Fancourt the Links
Golf in the Garden Route attended the Goose Wines tasting evening hosted by Fancourt at the world famous Links, which I must just say was outstanding we were wined and dined in style. The evening was so professionally put together, between the Links staff & Morne Jonker, we must salute them.

The Goose Wines – The Upper Langkloof appellation is arguably the coldest wine growing region in South Africa. These extreme climatic conditions ensure complexity of fruit & unique grapes that are handcrafted into world-class wines.
“The Goose” is styled into classic & elegantly structured wine by ageing it in these barrels for a further 18 to 24 months.
The Goose Expression 2005 is a 50% Shiraz & 50% Cabernet Sauvignon blend. The prominent Shiraz ensures herbaceous tones & white pepper flavours which fuse with the soft, blackberry undertones of the Cabernet Sauvignon.
