Tasting notes:
'This has an earthy, savoury side that brings to mind the Pinot Noirs of Martinborough in New Zealand. About one third whole-bunch fruit, and matured in French oak, 25% new. A creamy lick opens the black cherry and thyme nose. There’s firm, fruity acidity running through the blood-tinged fruit and enough fruit sweetness to balance the savouriness. Great purity and interest – this will age gracefully, but I would enjoy it now. Drinking Window 2020 - 2025.' – Decanter, 95/100

'Dangerfield comes from three distinct vineyards on the farm, all of them planted in the 1990s. Savoury, aromatic and herbal, with notes of fynbos and pine, it has subtle oak, some tannic grip and appealing fruit purity. Elegant stuff that's indicative of a shift in style. Drink 2020-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 93/100

'The 2017 involved some 30% whole bunch fermentation before maturation lasting 20 months in French oak, 25% new. The nose shows notes of blackberries, a hint of lavender, earth, pepper and other spice while the palate shows dense fruit, moderate acidity and firm tannins. Surprisingly full given a modest alcohol of 13.18%.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100

About Beaumont:
Beaumont, located in Botriver, is a family-run farm. It was founded by Raoul and Jayne Beaumont in 1974, and is now run by their son Sebastian Beaumont. The farm dates back to the 1700’s when it was owned by the Dutch East India Company and is now home to the region’s oldest wine cellar. The vineyards sit on ancient clay-rich soil and are said to be some of the finest in the area. Beaumont, always doing something interesting and different, were the first to introduce Mourvèdre as a single bottled variety in South Africa.
