Only the best barrels were selected for the Beyerskloof Diesel Pinotage – and you can see, scent and taste that. In a dark and intense red hue, the wine shimmers in the glass and scents wonderfully of plums and blackberries, while a pleasant cedar note adds the finishing touch to the bouquet. On the palate, the red wine is impressively well structured and balanced and the intense notes of dark fruits provide long-lasting moments of pleasure. Thanks to its great ageing potential, the wine will keep the hearts of red wine lovers beating faster for years to come. The Beyerskloof Diesel Pinotage matured for seventeen months in French oak and is an excellent companion to dishes with dark meat or a spicy curry. By the way, the great red wine is named after the Great Dane Diesel, a faithful companion of the owner Beyers Truter.

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.
