The nose of this Pinotage is mainly red-fruited, with a precise core that wafts with white and red spiced tea, fresh black cherry and dark dusty plum. The palate is honest with precision and focus not typically seen with Pinotage. The wine shows a remarkable balance of fruit, earth and florals, with a medium body. The finish is still grippy and lingers with well-structured tannins.
The nose of the 2016 Pinotage is mainly red-fruited, with a precise core that wafts with white and red spiced tea, fresh black cherry and dark dusty plum. The palate is honest with precision and focus not typically seen with Pinotage. The wine shows a remarkable balance of fruit, earth and florals, with a medium body. The finish is still grippy and lingers with well-structured tannins. There are none of the tones of the "funky Pinotage" to be found here. After fermentation in concrete tanks, the wine was moved into barrel and aged for 18 months. If you are not familiar with Beaumont, it is time to explore some of their wines.
Although best known for their deliciously vibrant and full-flavoured whites made from Chenin Blanc, the Beaumont estate also produces limited quantities of red wines from the Pinotage grape. Pinotage was the first wine made at Beaumont and this bottling is a stunning example of cool climate Pinotage made from 45-year-old vines. The grapes are vinified in concrete tanks and then aged in oak barrels for 18 months to soften Pinotage’s notoriously firm tannins. The result is a well-built, intensely fruited red wine with ample dark berry and cherry character which lingers on the tongue. The structure, fine balance, and subtle freshness of this wine make it an excellent match for red meat, and it will continue to develop and evolve if cellared over the next decade or so.
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.
