WoTM - Beaumont 'Jackals River' 2018

 My Wine of The Month for May is Beaumont 'Jackals River' 2018.

It is light in colour, smelling of raspberries. It is also unusually light for Pinotage at 13.5% abv. (The 2021 vintage is 13% abv.)

One of the things that first excited me about Pinotage was that it was made in many different styles. This is a light manifestation, red berries - raspberries and redcurrants - but I found an underlying taste that I couldn't identify.
