Beaumont Port 1999

Very dark, brick red and purple colour. Intense spicy nose dominated by cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg and medicinal aromatics. Big well balanced palate of dark plummy fruit, spices with a hint of toasty wood, this palate is backed up by nice dry tannins.

in the vineyard : A blend of 50% Pinotage and 50% Tinta Barocca grapes from 40 year old vines was used with this Port.

in the cellar : We do the traditional thing by footstomping in an open kuip to allow for maximum colour and tannin extraction. The wine was enoculated after two days on skins with WE372 yeast. After two days regular punching down the wine was hard pressed at 11° Balling and fortified at 9° Balling. The wine was then racked into 6th fill French Oak where it remained for two years. It was bottled by hand unfiltered and unfined. Only 75 cases produced.
