2016 Beaumont Pinotage Bot River South Africa

SKU #1458313 90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Pinotage, South African’s hybrid of Cinsault and Pinot Noir, has been Beaumont’s focus since the 1970s. Most of this wine comes from 45-year-old vines, with 20% from newer plantings. The wine has a smoky black-cherry scent, with pretty violet hints and peppery spice. Its tannins are strong, dusty and dry, allowing some flavor development to show in the finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The nose of the 2016 Pinotage is mainly red-fruited, with a precise core that wafts with white and red spiced tea, fresh black cherry and dark dusty plum. The palate is honest with precision and focus not typically seen with Pinotage. The wine shows a remarkable balance of fruit, earth and florals, with a medium body. The finish is still grippy and lingers with well-structured tannins. There are none of the tones of the "funky Pinotage" to be found here. After fermentation in concrete tanks, the wine was moved into barrel and aged for 18 months. If you are not familiar with Beaumont, it is time to explore some of their wines. Sebastian Beaumont, owner/winemaker at Beaumont, has a talent for making unique and expressive wines in Bot River. Based in a historic building, with the original cellar built in the 18th century, Sebastian makes hand-crafted wines that show grace, elegance and focus. They are worth the out-of-the-way drive to visit. (AM) Inner quote mark (10/2019)
