Pinotage was the very first wine made at Beaumont wines and 24 years later we are still passionate Pinotage producers! 80% of the fruit comes from our 43 year old vines providing dryness and structure while the younger portion provides lovely vibrant fruit. 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.
