Beeslaar TAJ Pinotage 2020

Covert Farms Family Estate Rosé wine
The grapes for the TAJ are sourced from the largest Pinotage vineyard in the world, located in South Africa's Swartland, and is made up of 20-year-old, unirrigated bush vines planted in decomposed shale soils. Made by world-renowned Pinotage winemaker Abrie Beeslaar, the inaugural 2020 vintage of TAJ gushes with ripe red berry aromas, with pronounced raspberry, cherry, and cranberry compote notes with cedary char, a hint of Pinotage's distinctive burnt rubber character, and a dusting of black liquorice. The palate highlights nicely integrated tannins with moderate acidity, giving good structure accented by a supple mouthfeel through a lengthy finish. Tasted January 2023.
Process: Unknown — except Beeslaar wines are typically matured for 17 months in French oak, 50% new.
