Beyerskloof Pinotage Stellenbosch 2008

Member Review by penguinoid:

Nose: Juicy dusty red fruit, cherry, spices, rich, earthy. Palate: Initially quite tannic, opens up with air. Rich red pinot-like dusty fruit, cherry, spice, earth. Medium body rich, sweet red fruit balanced over deeper, darker notes, perfectly balanced and harmonic. Sharp fresh acid, firm tannins that smooth out with air. Smooth mouthfeel.

In 1988 one of the Cape's most foremost wine makers, Beyers Truter of Kanonkop Estate formed a partnership with four ardent wine lovers in Johannesburg with one ideal in mind : To produce a wine of exceptional character. After exploring the Cape Winelands for a suitable location they found a perfectly situated farm in the Koelenhof area within the Stellenbosch Wine of Origin region. Coincidence provided an appropriate name. The farm's original name was Nooitgedacht, which for five generations belonged to the Beyers family before Jan Andries Beyers sold it in 1895. Beyers Truter is a direct descendent of Jan Beyers, thus making him the sixth generation to farm this land. This piece of land could only have one name - BEYERSKLOOF Today the business is in capable hands of Beyers Tuter and Simon Halliday from Raisin Social, UK Read less
