Beaumont Pinotage 2014

Pinotage was the very first wine made at Beaumont wines and 23 years later we are still passionate Pinotage producers!  80% of the fruit comes from our 42 year old vines providing dryness and structure while the younger portion provides lovely vibrant fruit.

Matches very well with bobotie, game and curries, spare ribs and pepper steak, or try snoek and grape jam.

A consistent 4 star winner in Platter. This is still an elegant style of Pinotage with red berry and ripe fruit flavours. A little chunkier than the 2013 vintage

Jancis Robinson wrote that the 2011 vintage was one of the best Pinotages she had ever tasted.

in the vineyard : 

Our style reflects the cooler climate of the Bot River region. Harvested between early February and late March the grapes are then crushed into open concrete fermenters. Punched down 3-4 times per day until end of ferment, then pressed and taken to barrels for 18 months and then taken to tank for another 8 months. Fresh red berry fruit with a deliciously drinkable medium body and well integrated tannins.

about the harvest: 

Good healthy but cooler vintage conditions allowed us to ripen the fruit and still keep its freshenss

in the cellar : 

Grapes were harvested and crushed directly into concrete tanks, followed by an immediate inoculation for a clean fermentation. Controlled temperatures allow for an optimum extraction period. Regular punch downs were done to assure good colour and tannin structure
