Beaumont Pinotage 2014

Beaumont Pinotage 2014


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts The Wine Advocate
The 2014 Pinotage comes from 21 and 43-year-old vines that crop at three tons per hectare; the wine is fermented in open-top concrete vats and matured in barrel for 18 months, a production of 62 barrels. It has an attractive bouquet with blackberry, mulberry and wild hedgerow aromas. There is an attractive "coolness" to it. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, ripe blackberry and bilberry with black pepper and iodine, perhaps needing just a little more persistence on the finish. Otherwise, this is a very finely made Pinotage from Beaumont.
89 pts Vinous / Antonio Galloni
Bright, dark red. Good spicy lift to the aromas of blueberry and licorice. Subtly intense dark berry flavors show a juicy quality but still need a year or two to soften. Finishes quite brisk and a bit ungiving, with substantial dusty tannins. I suspect a couple more years in the cellar will bring more pliancy and nuance



Winemaker Notes

Pinotage was the very first wine made at Beaumont wines and 23 years later they are still passionate Pinotage producers! 80% of thefruit comes from their 42 year old vines providing dryness and structure while the younger portion provides lovely vibrant fruit. This wine reflects the cooler climate of the Bot River region. It shows 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.
