Winemaker Notes

Concentrated aromas of black cherries, Christmas cake, wild strawberries, plums and cinnamon spice. The nose has that typical Beeslaar perfumed character, with an underlying earthy tone. Beautifully poised and elegant, with fine tannins to support the broad, plush fruit spectrum. The palate is mouth-filling and effortlessly balanced, with lingering savory notes on the finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast

Fynbos, rooibos tea and a touch of tobacco lead the bouquet of this earthy red. Blackberry sauce, plum and boysenberry follow suit to provide a fruity core and carry through to the medium-plus palate alongside bold, gripping tannins and a firm structure. Ample acidity helps to keep the balance in check, and while this is currently intense, it is so in balance, with all elements working together to form a cohesive whole. This will mature well, so enjoy now (with a good decant)

JS 92
James Suckling

This shows plenty of smoky aromas with hints of tar, spice and plums that follow through to a medium to full body with slightly chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Very typical. Very drinkable.

WS 90
Wine Spectator

A balanced, medium-bodied red, with dark berry and cherry fruit that's ripe, juicy and enriched by hints of mocha, dried fig, melted licorice and loamy earth. Supple tannins and a touch of orange peel acidity keep this focused and harmonious.

Beeslaar, South Africa
Abrie Beeslaar, previously the winemaker at esteemed Stellenbosch property Kanonkop, now has his own label named Beeslaar. Abrie explains the Beeslaar property as being "about two kilometres from Kanonkop in the direction of Bottelary Road." Beeslaar wines are matured for 17 months in French oak, 50% new. Jamie Goode explained the Beeslaar Pinotage as being "one of the most profound interpretations of the often tricky Pinotage grape that you can imagine. It’s the Grand Cru Burgundy of Pinotages: structured, fresh, complex, ageworthy and elegant, despite its obvious concentration."

Stellenbosch Wine

South Africa

View all products

South Africa’s most famous wine-producing district, Stellenbosch, surrounds the historic town with the same name; fine winemaking here dates back to the late 1600s. Its valleys of granite, sandstone and alluvial loam soils between the towering blue-grey mountains of Stellenbosch, Simonsberg and Helderberg have the capacity to produce beautiful wines from many varieties. The climate is warm Mediterranean, tempered by the cool Atlantic air of nearby False Bay.

Perhaps most well-known for its Pinotage and Bordeaux blends, Stellenbosch also produces noteworthy wines from Syrah, Chenin blanc, Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc. The district’s wards—Banghoek, Bottelary, Devon Valley, Jonkershoek Valley, Papegaaiberg, Polkadraai Hills and Simonsberg-Stellenbosch—all produce distinctive wines from vines with relatively low yields.

South Africa’s signature grape, Pinotage is a distinctively earthy and rustic variety. In 1924 viticulturists crossed finicky Pinot Noir and productive, heat-tolerant Cinsault, and created a variety both darker and bolder than either of its parents! Today it is popular in South Africa both as a single varietal wine and in Cape blends. Somm Secret—The name “Pinotage” is a subtle portmanteau. The Pinot part is obvious, but the second half is a bit confusing. In the early 1900s, Cinsault was known in South Africa as “Hermitage”—hence Pinotage.
