Wine Name: Beyerskloof Diesel Pinotage Varietal(s): 100% Pinotage

Vintage: 2015

Soil: Oakleaf, Klapmuts

Trellising: Bush vines

Colour: Deep dark middle

Bouquet: Rich blackcurrant and black cherry fruit upfront combines well with the elegant cedar oak aromas.

Tasting notes: A big structured Pinotage with intense dark fruit avours. A deep middle leads to a smooth nish with pleasant chocolate/cedar aromas from the French oak. Great balance between fruit and oak will allow superb ageing in the bottle for 10 years and more. The ideal match to spicy Indian dishes or a well matured rump/sirloin steak.

Vintage Notes: Good rainfalls and ideal cold weather conditions during winter ensured good nutrient storage and led to sufcient underground water levels for the growing season. 2015 was one of the earliest vintage in decades. Warm weather in August resulted in early bud break, after which a warm dry summer kept the vineyard growth under control and accelerated ripening by 10 – 14 days. The dry season resulted in one of the healthiest vintage in years with no losses due to diseases and rot at Beyerskloof.

This is one of the best Vintage for Stellenbosch and Beyerskloof in decades, so look out for 2015 wines in 2 years’ time!

Winemaking: 5 days in open casks with punch downs every 2 hours. Average fermentation temperature was 27˚C. After Malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine matured in 100% new French oak barrels for 20 months. After maturation, only 20 barrels were selected out of 300.

Beyerskloff Pinotage | 2017

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Beyerskloof Pinotage boast with being South-Africa’s most popular Pinotage, and it’s no wonder. This wine hasshown a fruity and enjoyable consistency year after year. Classic Pinotage. A wine made to enjoy, to drink at any occasion.

 

Wine Name: Beyerskloof Pinotage Varietal(s): 100% Pinotage

Vintage: 2017

Soil: Hutton, Clovely and Kroonstad

Trellising: Mainly bush vines

Colour: Dark Ruby Red.

Bouquet: Primary fruit aromas lead to an abundance of plum and black cherries against mocha, cedar & sweet spicy notes.

Tasting notes: Strong plum avours with velvety tannins. Well structured, yet elegant and soft, medium-bodied with a fresh and superbly balanced nish. Impressive for consistency, given the volume produced of this specic vintage. For a full avoured experience we recommend drinking young.

Vintage Notes: This was the driest winter, spring and summer since the start of the farm in 1988.We had half of our yearly rainfall which meant that we had to irrigate all our Vineyards for at least 48 hours. 2016 was once again an early vintage. Warm/dry weather in August resulted in early bud break, after which a warm dry summer kept the vineyard growth under control and accelerated ripening by 10-14 days. The driest season in Beyerskloof history resulted in a healthy vintage, but very uneven ripening for the later cultivars due to the lack of water. Early cultivars like the Pinot Noir and Pinotage looks very good and due to sorting system demos we could salvage some good Cab’s and Merlot!

Winemaking: Different systems of skin contact and fermentation in open fermenters, roto tanks and fermentomatics. 4 to 5 days on skins at 25°C. After malolactic fermentation the wine was treated with oak.
