‘The nose is very expressive – cherry, plum, banana, pink sweets , vanilla and spice plus more base notes of earth and reduction. The palate shows great fruit density – there’s a sucrosity upfront but this offset by pleasantly grippy tannins, while the finish is long and savoury. A very refined offering.’ – Christian Eedes,, 95/100

‘Abrie Beeslaar only makes 5,000 bottles of this rich, oaky, concentrated Pinotage, which makes it something of a collector’s item. With more red than black fruits in 2016, it’s smoky, toasty and textured with lovely fruit sweetness. 2022-30’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 94/100

‘The nose is beautifully fragrant, filled with aromas of cherries, plums, dark chocolate and cinnamon spice. On the palate it is immensely dense, with a fresh acidity and beautiful fruit purity. The fine and delicate tannins add a majestic framework to facilitate graceful ageing over the next 20 years. Lingering notes of red fruits and cured meats complete a stellar wine.’ – Beeslaar

Producer information Award-winning winemaker, Abrie Beeslaar, has been the winemaker at Kanonkop since 2002. His love of South Africa’s unique grape variety, Pinotage, led him to establish his own brand, Beeslaar, in 2011. ‘I guess one could argue that I didn’t pick Pinotage – instead, it picked me,’ says Abrie. Beeslaar is a family-run business, producing a single, high-end Pinotage. The grapes are sourced from a 2.5-hectare vineyard of old bush vines in the Simonsberg region and the wine produced is a true expression of its terroir.
