WOTM - Beyerskloof Reserve 2006
My Wine of the Month for September is Beyerskloof Reserve 2006. After a week in Alsace where pale thin Pinot Noir is served very cold I longed for the body, flavour and warmth of a decent Pinotage, and what is more reliable than Beyerskloof?
I’d intended keeping this longer, the back label suggest up to 15 years, but it is drinking beautifully now. Youthful exuberance has given way to a more precise sleekness and tastes of red plums with a trace of dark chocolate on the finish. Suddenly we were looking at an empty bottle. Delicious.
Beyerskloof Reserve 2006 was a Top 10 Winner in 2008.
