The farm was originally established in the 1700’s by the Dutch East India Company. In the 1940’s the wine business was initially started but wine production was discontinued in the late 1960’s. Jayne and Raoul Beaumont bought the farm Compagnes Drift in 1974 and set about replanting the vineyards. However, the legacy of creating wines in the farm cellar under the family name was only initiated years later. After generations of partnering with nature, the land now offers some of the finest vineyards in the area. Together with a non-conformist approach to winemaking, these vines produce notably balanced, classical and artisanal wines. Sebastian Beaumont is in charge of both the vineyards and winemaking.
Pinotage was the very first wine made at Beaumont wines and 23 years later they are still passionate Pinotage producers! 80% of the fruit comes from over 40 year old vines providing dryness and structure while the younger portion provides lovely vibrant fruit.
A consistent 4 star winner in Platter. This is still an elegant style of Pinotage with red berry and ripe fruit flavours.
A perfect partner to marinaded ribs, grilled over the open fire with some seasonal flame grilled vegetables.
