Latest vintage of Beyerskloof Diesel Pinotage awarded 5 Star Platter rating for the second year in a row. It would seem that even from canine heaven we are being inspired and blessed by a true friend in capturing a style of Pinotage to showcase its true character. Diesel would have been a fine Pinotage maker as he had more faith in this cultivar than most people.
