Beaumont - Pinotage

Tasting notes

Drink now through to 2026. No need to decant before serving.

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 actually 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.

    About the Producer

    Beaumont Estate Vineyards was established in 1995… As stewards of the environment, an issue of rising importance, the family proprietors - Alex, Louise, Scott, and Alana - systemically built up the total acreage (36 acres) of vineyards. They investigated the best kinds of grapes to grow and embarked upon the more labour-intensive organic farming methodology. They have been 100% certified organic since 1995 with the Similkameen Okanagan Organic Producers Association (#456). The grape varieties grown are well-suited for the West Kelowna area and the vineyards are all within two city blocks of each other.

    The principles are simple. Terroir, minimal intervention and vine management. In the organic practices, low bud numbers and small bunches per vine produce premium fruit quality. The adoption of old world and new world philosophies is at the heart of what makes the vineyards produce its quality wines.
