Beyerskloof Stellenbosch Winemaker and Winery
Beyers Truter, runs this property in a partnership which includes UK based wine merchant Simon Halliday. Here he makes stylish and vibrant Pinotage in a light and elegant style and a dense and burly premium red, the Field Blend which combines Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot. This is in a rich chocolatey style with abundant evidence of new oak. It will be better with five years’ cellaring. Newly added are a fruity rosé and a well-priced red blend, Synergy. This comprises Merlot, Pinotage and Cabernet Sauvignon and is sourced from a number of sites around Stellenbosch. It is ripe, plummy and forward with a spicy hint of oak and can be enjoyed with a couple of years’ ageing. A Brut Pinotage Rosé sparkler has also been added along with Lagare Cape, a fortified style from Touriga Nacional and Pinotage and a white Chenin/Pinotage. The range also includes two further premium reds. Diesel Pinotage and Faith a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage and Merlot. (DM)
