Description

Arguably the benchmark, year in and year out for Pinotage, Kanonkop is one of our favourite wineries to visit when we're in Stellenbosch. With a historic winery full of concrete fermenting tanks, very similar to what you see in the Rhone, the cellars are full of history and you always get a warm reception. The old vine (63 years plus) Pinotage spends 16 months in French oak followed by at least another year in bottle before release. This 2018 is approachable in its youth but can also be aged 10+ years.

Smells

Dark berry fruit and a hint of tar, game, mahogany, plum and smoke.

Tastes

Rich, weighty and filled with liquorice, smoky oak and cured game meats, the long, ripely fruited finish aided by lavish tannins. A classic expression that's at the very top of the quality tree. Enjoy with Boerewors hot dog or spiced mushroom burger.
