Beyerskloof Pinotage

 

Our emblem of a Pinotage vine leaf shows the distinctive tooth-shaped gap between the first two lobes. Winemaker Beyers Truter, world renowned for his Pinotage wines, was named International Winemaker of the Year at the 1991 International Wine and Spirit Competition held in London. Pinotage is unique to South Africa. It was created in Stellenbosch by cross-pollinating Pinot Noir and Hermitage (Cinsaut) cultivars. The grapes derive from unirrigated bush vines of 20 - 40 years old in the famous Stellenbosch wine region. Full bodied and complex, this wine embodies the best features of Pinotage. The blackberry and cassis flavours are well balanced with the subtle wood maturation characer. It can be enjoyed now, but the smooth richness will develop even further for up to five years. Ideal with venison, red meat, curries and spicy foods.

Leopards Leap Pinotage Shiraz

Based in Franschhoek, in the heart of South Africa's wine district, Leopard's Leap crafts its wines from the finest grapes picked from the best vineyards in the Cape winelands, home to the magnificent Cape Mountal Leopard. Soft and medium-bodied this wine reflects the distinctive characteristics of both varietals in the blend. Plum and mulberry flavours are supported by vanilla undertones while the character is spicy and peppery, with a firm tannin structure. An ideal companion with oxtail, roast pork or hearty stews, as well as liver, quiche or cold meats. Leopard's Leap is also a proud sponsor of The Cape Leopard Trust, which seeks to protect the magnificent Cape Mountain Leopard. The endangered leopards make their home in part of the Cape winelands.
