Already the intense, dark red colour announces a complex and multi-layered red wine – a promise that the Beyerskloof Pinotage Reserve also fulfils, because the winery is one of the specialists for this grape variety and creates expressive wines with its high expertise. The wonderful aroma of dark fruits with a hint of oak rises to the nose and spoils the senses of the connoisseur. On the palate, aromas of blackberries and plums are particularly present and are surrounded by a fine cedar note, which the Beyerskloof Pinotage Reserve owes to its fifteen months of ageing in wooden barrels. Perfectly balanced and long-lasting in flavour, this red wine is an excellent accompaniment to a delicious curry. But also dark meat, for example lamb, is a good choice for Beyerskloof Pinotage Reserve, which you should definitely enjoy on its own.

Expert Judgement

"If you wanted to introduce someone who's never tried Pinotage to the grape, you could do worse than hand them a bottle of this textbook example. Plush, supple and floral, with raspberry and blueberry fruit, stylish oak and a volatile lift." Tim Atkin

Beyerskloof – South Africa’s Pinotage at its Peak

In the national as well as international wine world,  Beyerskloof is considered as the home of South African Pinotage wines. Quite rightly so. Beyers Truter, founder of Beyerskloof, was already committed to the red grape variety during his time as a winemaker at Kanonkop. With a wide range of Pinotage varieties, he and his team have made a significant contribution to the promotion of South Africa's national vine and continue to ensure that Pinotage wines of world-class quality are produced to this day. 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 on the family vineyard.

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.
