WINEMAKER | Abrie Beeslaar

Produced from old bush vine vineyards up to 65 years of age, the grapes were hand-harvested and optically sorted. Whole berries were pumped into the cellar and fermented in open-top concrete fermenters at 28°C. Punch downs were done by hand every two hours during fermentation, and juice was drawn off the skins after 3 days. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was matured for 16 months in French Nevers oak barrels.

Expect vibrant aromas of blueberries, ripe plums, black cherries, cinnamon, and vanilla on the nose, with a sultry and luxurious palate densely packed with flavours of berry compote, wild bramble, plum tart, and spicy Christmas cake. The Kanonkop Pinotage 2019 has a lingering finish and can be aged for 10 to 15 years from vintage.

Beautifully poised and elegant…
