96 points Tim Atkin, MW: "(14.5%). Abrie Beeslaar sources his Pinotage from sandier soils than the ones he uses to make Kanonkop's Black Label release. The result is a slightly brighter, more scented wine with less weight and concentration but engaging finesse and palate length. Silky and supple, it's a red that shows the Pinot Noir side of the grape's personality, with fine tannins and sweet summer berry flavours. 2022-28."

The 2018 Beeslaar Pinotage is a true expression of a great vineyard site and shows the consistency of these 25 year old bush vines. The wine offers aromas and flavors of blackcurrant and baking spice, with complex notes of dark chocolate and licorice. The palate is structured but elegant, with fine-grained tannins lingering on the mouthwateringly dry finish. A classic expression of Pinotage which deftly balances power and elegance.
