Beyerskloof - King of Pinotage
The Beyerskloof winery in South Africa is one of the country's younger estates. In 1988, one of the best winemakers of the country, Beyers Truter, decided to cooperate with four other wine connoisseurs, to produce 'wine with extraordinary character'. Meanwhile, Beyers son Anri is the responsible winemaker. Within only a few years, Beyerskloof succeeded in creating excellent red and white wine from the cultivated noble grapes. By now, Beyerskloof is more than an insider's tip and has won international awards.
Beyerskloof Soils Are Similar to Bordeaux
The Beyerskloof soils are of a similar composition such as the ones in Bordeaux. Considering the South African climate, it is therefore an ideal location for the sophisticated wine cultivation of grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and the Pinotage. Beyerskloof also produces sparkling wines and delicious rosé. The winemakers forgo artificial watering in the wine slopes to let the natural terroir come through fully. This is why many typical South African wines are produced at the vineyard Beyerskloof, which really capture the country's much-vaunted attitude towards life.
Beyerskloof Has a Clear Philosophy
A simple, yet powerful philosophy is embraced at Beyerskloof. The winery always wants to be a step ahead. The overriding principle: deliver absolute high quality wine that excites critics, and mainly wine lovers, all along the line. Additionally, Beyerskloof is committed to the up-and-coming national grape of South Africa, the Pinotage. Excellent wines are created from this grape that significantly contributes to the country's fame.
