Beeslaar Pinotage, Stellenbosch 2018

Red Wine from South Africa
From mature, unirrigated vineyards selected by pinotage master Abrie Beeslaar, the grapes for this South African wine were hand selected and fermented in open-top concrete vats, then matured in oak for 21 months. Combined with the cooler nights that refreshed parched vines in 2018, the result is a muscular yet supremely elegant wine, a powerful modern expression of a classic style.

If you want to buy just one bottle of pinotage to see how good this variety can get then try [this wine]. It is superb: concentrated yet elegant and aromatic with a nice tang to it, too. It�s the fragrance that really got me on this. Beeslaar pinotage is one of those wines you keep on inhaling, sticking your nose into the glass over and over again, sniffing the fruit which is like confit strawberries and raspberries with the more herbal aromatics coming through it � rose and grasses and fynbos (the heathland vegetation native to South Africa). The grapes for this wine come from a small Stellenbosch vineyard that is about 200m above sea level and lies close to the Simonsberg mountain. Pinotage is increasingly being celebrated for that quality, revered in wine grapes, of being able to translate geography and geology into something you can taste.
