|Platter's Wine Guide 2024: Wine of the Year Red Blends with Pinotage / 5 stars
£47.50 per bottle
Beyerskloof Faith Cape Blend is a blend of 34% Pinotage, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot which is a testament to the faith Beyers Truter has in Pinotage and the abundant blessings of nature melded in this ultimate expression of South Africa’s heritage grape sired in Stellenbosch soils. A big structured, well-rounded, and elegantly balanced Cape blend.
The 2020 vintage shows upfront dark fruit/cassis which compliments the spicy cedar oak aromas. On the palate intense dark fruit and cassis upon entry with delicate spice and cedar aromas from the new oak. A big structured Cape blend with excellent complexity but still great balance. Hints of dark chocolate add to a long smooth finish.
Food pairing: Pairs well with matured sirloin, beef bourguignon and oxtail.
Ageing potential: Optimum drinking time will be 5-8 years from vintage, but the wine should age well for 10-15 years.
Alcohol: 15% ABV
