Beyerskloof Synergy

As part of the Reserve Range, the Beyerskloof Synergy represents not only the synergy of their four red grape varieties, but all the different slopes, soils and micro-climates where they are grown.  This wine combines the classic European with the New World wine styles.  A wonderful partner to red meat, game, cheese and spicy foods.

 

33% Pinotage, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon and 34% Merlot

Intense dark red colour with a pleasant ruby red rim.

Initial impressions of lovely red fruit and cherries give way to sweet cedar oak aromas.  An abundance of black fruit upon entry leads to a big, juicy middle with soft, well rounded tannins.  A classic Cape Blend with a pleasant lingering aftertaste.  Serve with stews, game dishes or lamb shank.

The two varieties form a seamless combination to create a rich and rewarding wine of depth and complexity. The perfect accompaniment to rich meat stews, grilled rack of lamb, rare roast beef and ostrich fillet.
