Description

Intense purple hues with lively aromas of fresh plums, mulberries and allspice, followed by a meaty undertone. The palate displays an inherent earthy touch, with flavours of crimson beetroot and maraschino cherries. Coherent balance between the fruit and the fresh acidity, with muscular support from the tightly-woven tannin structure.

Vinification
Fermentation took place in open concrete fermenters at 28°C. The cap was punched down manually every 2 hours, with the juice drawn off the skins after 3-5 days. Post fermentation, the wine was matured for 12 months in 2nd- and 3rd-fill French oak barrels.

  1. Tim Atkin | 90pts

    By far the cheapest of the three Pinotages that Abri Beeslaar makes at Kanonkop, but it’s still a very impressive wine, not least because he makes 800,000 bottles of it. Lightly wooded, with plenty of colour, scented bramble and raspberry fruit, textured tannins and a twist of liquorice. 2022-27
