Quick Overview

Member Winemaker - Beyers Truter CWG Beyerskloof Cape Blend


The grapes were picked at optimum ripeness and the wine made in open fermenters. The juice was on the skins for 4-5 days at 25º Celsius. Punching of the cap was done every 2 hours, and the skins and the juice were separated at 3-5º B. After malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine aged in 100% new French oak barrels for 18 months. The best barrels were then selected for this wine. Tasting note: A full bodied Cape Blend with a deep red colour. The black berry flavours are well balanced with the complex aromas from the new French oak. A wine with a spicy aftertaste that could last in the bottle for 10 years or more.
