Beyerskloof Diesel Pinotage

This prestige pinotage was produced with special purpose:  To honour an intimate friendship between a master vintner and his loyal dog, but also to exhibit the individuality of South Africa's indigenous grape in ultimate cellar artistry.

Allowing for dedicated vineyard expression and crafted from the best barrels, the wine showcases the complexity, finesse, broadness of palate, depth and length obtainable when all components are skillfully harmonised and terroir respected.

Colour: Deep dark red middle with a ruby red rim.

Bouquet: Rich blackcurrant and black cherry fruit upfront combines well with the elegant cedar oak aromas.

Tasting notes: A big structured Pinotage with intense dark fruit flavours. A complex middle leads to a smooth finish with pleasant cedar flavours from the oak. Great balance between fruit and oak will allow superb ageing in the bottle for 10 years and more. The ideal match to spicy Indian dishes or a well matured rump/sirloin steak.
