The Beyerskloof Traildust sparkles ruby red in the glass and exudes the unbelievably fruity scents of red fruit and cherries, surrounded by oak notes. On the palate, the blend of Pinot Noir (34%), Pinotage (33%) and Cinsault (33%) is also very fruity with aromas of cherries and plums. The soft tannins give the red wine, which matured in French oak for twelve months, a nice balance. Beyerskloof Traildust is best enjoyed with dishes featuring duck or game. Incidentally, the name of the wine is a reminder of all those who help the Pinotage grapes find their way from the vineyard into the glass of the connoisseur.

In the national as well as international wine world, Beyerskloof is considered as the home of South African Pinotage wines. Quite rightly so. With a wide range of Pinotage variations, the winemaker Beyers Truter and his team have made it their mission to promote South Africa’s national grape. Due to an exceptional quality with each new vintage, they succeeded in every aspect. Besides the special love for red wine, Beyerskloof also produces completely new flavours which is confirmed by the unusual rosés and white wines with parts of Pinotage on a high level. Not least due to the efforts of the winery, Pinotage strongly belongs to the canon of the wine world and therefore in the wine cellar of every ambitious gourmet.
Beyers Truter with Skill and Intuition
The winemaker Beyers Truter was the first South African winemaker to be awarded as the Winemaker of the Year by the judges of the International Wine and Spirit Competition. The uncrowned ‘King of Pinotage’ studied at the Stellenbosch University and therefore has the required knowledge about the area to have constant success. Skill and a fine sense for the right grape varieties and combinations have brought him and his wines numerous awards. He is also the founder of the Pinotage Association that has the aim to push the vine Pinotage even further through detailed studies and courage to experiment. Meanwhile, his son Anri followed in his footsteps and is responsible as winemaker.
The Winery with that certain Something
Everyone who has visited the estate Beyerskloof knows that there is a special atmosphere here. The beautiful and breathtaking view of the surrounding landscape is just one reason for the special experience on the yard. Every team member, from the Tasting Room staff up to the winemaker himself just radiates reputable serenity that is simply contagious. In a calm but contemplative environment, you can enjoy with all your senses and relax.
