Beeslaar Wines

About

Abrie Beeslaar, winemaker at esteemed Stellenbosch property Kanonkop, now has his own label named Beeslaar. Abrie explains the origin of the grapes as being “a property about two kilometres from Kanonkop in the direction of the Bottelary Road” and the wine was matured for 17 months in French oak, 50% new. One of the most profound interpretations of the often tricky Pinotage grape that you can imagine.

Pinotage

Stellenbosch

Harvest & Vintage Notes
Dry farmed, old bushvine Pinotage in the heart of Stellenbosch. There is no one who knows Pinotage better than Abrie. Fermented in open top concrete and finished in barrique. This one a mind changer. Black currant, baking spice, pure elegance.
