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. International Wine Challenge | 90pts – Silver

    “Lovely depth and length to this wine, the palate is packed with mulberries, smoky bacon and liquorice with grippy tannins to balance.”

  2. Tim Atkin | 92pts

    “Abrie Beeslaar has a magic touch with Pinotage, whatever the price point. This 450,000-bottle example, most of it bought from local growers, is spicy, textured and very lightly wooded, with classic raspberry and red berry fruit and supple tannins. Very drinkable. 2020-25”
