The Beyerskloof Pinotage is another proof that Beyerskloof and winemaker Beyers Truter create the best Pinotage wines from South Africa. The wine presents itself to gourmets with a deep, dark red colour in the wine glass. Immediately, intense fruity nuances of ripe berries fill the air, closely followed by a hint of wood. In the taste, this delicious Pinotage seamlessly ties up to its fruity bouquet. The tongue notices rich berry- and plumnuances that peak in a harmonious, lingering finish with a great balance.
All gourmets that like a strong character will also like the Beyerskloof Pinotage. In interplay with dark meat dishes such as venison or game, this red wine is a true feast for the palate. The combination with spicy pasta dishes also lets a connoisseur’s mouth water.
The vine of the Beyerskloof Pinotage was created at the beginning of the twentieth century from a cross between the two grape varieties Cinsaut and Pinot Noir. This red grape that is strong in character combines the sweet, berry Pinot Noir taste with the fruity spice of Cinsaut. It is not only popular amongst gourmets but also winemakers because this vine is considered to be highly robust. Nuances of mulberry, banana and tobacco are typical for this luscious variety.
With the Beyerskloof Pinotage, the winery Beyerskloof has created a Pinotage red wine from South Africa that is true to its grape variety, perfectly mirrors its terroir and confirms the high quality of the estate’s wines. Beyerskloof is located in the famous Stellenbosch region and is often noted in wine reviews as a step-above-the-rest because of their outstanding signature red wines.
Impatient gourmets will highly enjoy the Beyerskloof Pinotage right away, especially with hearty meat dishes. This red wine strong in character can also mature in the cellar for a few years and will keep its intense fruity taste.
