Beyerskloof Pinotage 2015

Beyerskloof Pinotage 2015

Colour: Dark Ruby Red Colour  
Bouquet: Primary fruit aromas lead to an abundance of plum and black cherries against mocha, cedar & sweet spicy notes.
Tasting notes: Strong plum flavours with velvety tannins. Well structured, yet elegant and soft, medium-bodied with a fresh and superblybalanced finish. Impressive for consistency, given the volume produced of this specific vintage. For a full flavoured experiencewe recommend drinking young.

about the harvest: 

Good rainfalls and ideal cold weather conditions during winter ensured good nutrient storage and led to sufficient underground water levels for the growing season. 2015 was one of the earliest vintage in decades. Warm weather in August resulted in early bud break, after which a warm dry summer kept the vineyard growth under control and accelerated ripening by 10 – 14 days. The dry season resulted in one of the healthiest vintage in years with no losses due to diseases and rot at Beyerskloof. This is one of the best Vintage for Stellenbosch and Beyerskloof in decades, so look out for 2015 wines in 2 years’ time!

in the cellar : 

Different systems of skin contact and fermentation in open fermenters, roto tanks and fermentomatics. 4 to 5 days on skins at 25°C. After malolactic fermentation the wine was treated with oak.
