Beeslaar Pinotage 2014

Beeslaar Pinotage 2014 96 pts Tim Atkin MW 2016

Tasting Notes

Jan 2017 - The 3rd release of this wine, the 2014 Beeslaar Pinotage is quite reflective of the cool vintage for the Western Cape. While the 2013, our first exposure to the wine, was a bit fleshier with more weight, the just released 2014 shows more finesse and elegance, reminding of a Pinot Noir with lifted fruit flavors and finely tuned tannin on the back end. Notes of blue and red fruit flavors shine through while the palate is refined, the tannins quite fine and just now starting to integrate, giving this a polished and smooth texture feel, all things signaling that, again, this is unlike any Pinotage you have ever tried.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

96 pts Tim Atkin MW 2016
“Very few people pick this up as Pinotage”, says winemaker, Abrie Beeslaar, and you can see why. Grown on low-lying shale soils in Stellenbosch, it’s another brilliant release (the third) from the Kanonkop winemaker’s own venture. Smooth, subtle and beautifully refined, with notes of blueberry and raspberry, fine tannins and a polished finish. Drink: 2017-25.
93 pts Vinous May 2017
(14.5% alcohol): Dark, bright ruby-red. Very ripe, almost chocolatey aromas of raspberry and dark cherry, with some oak showing. Creamy-rich and sweet but with lovely harmonious acidity. Broad, fine-grained, rather powerful wine with terrific density of berry fruits and spices and a restrained sweetness. This plush, fine-grained wine has 3-D depth. Finishes with broad, sweet but substantial tannins to support a slow evolution in bottle. Builds nicely on the end, retaining its sweetness and avoiding dryness. A wonderfully fruity, clean, substantial Pinotage with a lot of early sex appeal.
