Beyerskloof Pinotage Reserve 2011

Beyerskloof Pinotage Reserve 2011

Deep purple core with an vibrant ruby red taint.. Enticing upfront presence of blackcurrants, cassis and prunes accompanied by subtle aromas of cedar, spice and charred] mocha on the nose. On the palate this wine has a juicy and voluptuous fruit entry which gives way to a delicate balance between acidity and tannin. A long, lingering finish with a sweet berry and well integrated oak aftertaste.

This wine will pair very well with any red meat or venison dishes, but shouts out for a nice juicy steak.
