“Pinotage is not for sissies”, words Jan Boland Coetzee will use to explain the challenges of Pinotage to other winemakers. It was these challenges and the exposure to great old vines baring unique grapes that started this love affair with Pinotage. If you are lucky enough to have the right terroir and put in the effort that Pinotage deserves, there is no wine more rewarding.

Beeslaar Pinotage 2018
The 2018 Beeslaar Pinotage is a true expression of a great vineyard site and shows the consistency of these 25 year old bush vines. The wine offers aromas and flavours of blackcurrant and baking spice, with complex note of dark chocolate and liquorice. The palate is structured but elegant, with fine-grained tannins linger on the mouthwateringly dry finish. A classic expression of Pinotage which deftly balances power and elegance.
