Beyers Truter, winery founder and winemaker, searched for prime land within Stellenbosch to plant his Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. Truter is not only known as "Mr. Pinotage" to much of the industry, but he is also one of South Africa's most respected winemakers.
Beyerskloof's "Cape Blend" refers to a blend of 38% Pinotage, 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Merlot. Uncommon and very South African. Goes beautifully with grilled meats, curries and aged beef.
