Beyerskloof 2007 Pinotage (Stellenbosch) South Africa
Availability: BC Liquor Store
Cost: $15.99 (BC Liquor Store)
Tasting Notes: A very nice and unexpected wine from South Africa. The appearance was clear and light ruby. The nose exhibited bandaid (in a good way) and coffee which continued onto the palate with notes of strawberry. The finish was decent and overall this was a very nice wine, it was unique as well as light and flavourful.
My good friend from South Africa has been schooling me on the offerings from his homeland. His advice is that there are only a few good ones on the shelves these days so to really get the top notch stuff you'll have to visit. - HC
