The Dangerfield Syrah from Beaumont Family Wines is taken from three different vineyards on their property. This South African wine is aged in oak for 20 months, and pays homage to the delicate style of French wines.
On the nose, it has spicey, peppery aromas. It’s full-bodied and complex on the palate, with notes of berry and fine tannins. Earthy, but light and fresh, the Beaumont Dangerfield Syrah is very balanced and pleasant to drink.
Pair this delicious Syrah with vegetables like charred aubergine. It’s also great with heartu meats, like marinated lamb chops, spicy sausages, venison, or steak.
Beaumont has been a family business since 1974. Located in Overberg, east of Cape Town in South Africa, Beaumont Family Wines is the result of the hard work and dedication of Raoul and Jayne Beaumont, with the latter pioneering the first wines—Pinotage.
The Dangerfield Syrah was named for a character in The Ginger Man, by Irish writer, JP Donleavy. It was one of Raoul’s favorite novels. When their son, Sebastian, was born, they planned to use “Dangerfield” as his middle name, but the grandparents rejected that decision. Sebastian is the current Beaumont winemaker, and his dashed middle name was given to this wine.
Store unopened red wines in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 16 to 18°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
