Beyerskloof

Beyerskloof

Winemaker/s:

Travis Langley & Anri Truter

 

In 1988 one of the Cape’s most foremost wine makers, Beyers Truter of Kanonkop Estate, formed a partnership with four ardent wine lovers in Johannesburg with one ideal in mind: to produce a wine of exceptional character.

After exploring the Cape Winelands for a suitable location they found a perfectly situated farm in the Koelenhof area within the Stellenbosch Wine of Origin region. Coincidence provided an appropriate name. The farm’s original name was Nooitgedacht, which for five generations belonged to the Beyers family before Jan Andries Beyers sold it in 1895.

Beyers Truter is a direct descendent of Jan Beyers, thus making him the sixth generation to farm this land. This piece of land could only have one name – BEYERSKLOOF.

The winemakers prefer open fermentation in open-air tanks for some of the Pinotage grapes to achieve the extra skin-juice contact that leads to improved colour and extraction levels.

A barrel maturation cellar to store the new French Nevers oak 225 litre barriques, a crucial element of the Truter wine making philosophy, stores in the region of about 1 300 barrels. Beyerskloof was the first Cape wine to enjoy early maturation in 100% new barriques.
