Grape variety:  Pinotage

 

Producer: Beaumont winery

Alcohol content: 13.34%

Origin: South Africa

Notes: Pinotage was the very first wine made at Beaumont wines and 20 years later we are still passionate Pinotage producers!  80% of the fruit comes from our 40 year old vines providing dryness and structure while the younger portion provides lovely vibrant fruit. 

Our style reflects the cooler climate of the Bot River region. Harvested between early February and late March the grapes are then crushed into open concrete fermenters. Punched down 3-4 times per day until end of ferment, then pressed and taken to barrels for 14 months. Fresh red berry fruit with a deliciously drinkable medium body and well integrated tannins.  

Matches very well with bobotie, game and curries, spare ribs and pepper steak, or try snoek and grape jam. 

Critical acclaim

 A consistent 4 star winner in Platter. Its elegance doesn’t make it a great show wine but one needs to drink wine and this Pinotage you can drink. Jancis Robinson wrote that the 2011 vintage was one of the best Pinotages she had ever tasted. 

Food Pairing: Chicken Bobotie, Fish curry, Beef Shin
