WoTM - Beyerskloof Diesel Pinotage 2014

My Wine of the Month for November is Beyerskloof Diesel Pinotage 2014. This won the Abraham Perold Pinotage Trophy at this year's International Wine and Spirit Competition and I was lucky enough to drink it with lunch.



Diesel is a barrel selection of the best; just 22 barrels out of 300 were selected for the 2014.

The wine fermented in open casks for 5 days, with punch downs every 2 hours, and it was matured 18 months in 100% new French oak barrels.

Of the 2014 Beyerskloof Diesel the IWSC Judges' said:

Primarily pure fruit with hints of licorice, mint, coffee beans and smoky aromas. Great concentration of flavours on the palate, silky smooth texture, long finish with a hint of chocolate.
