‘Akin to facing down a glass of Romanée Conti’ – Kanonkop Black Label 2017

The lasting impression of this wine on the palate is the vitality, precision, knowhow and authority that beam from the glass akin to facing down a glass of Romanée Conti Burgundy. But I’ll stop there… the rest is up to you… the consumer!’ – Greg Sherwood MW on the 2017 Black Label Pinotage

On the back of a massively successful year, we are offering the latest releases from SA’s premier producer – the very impressive 2017 Kanonkop Black Label Pinotage and the classic 2014 Kanonkop Cabernet Sauvignon.

From this iconic winery comes the new vintage of their rare Black Label Pinotage. In many ways Kanonkop is the embodiment of South African Pinotage. The 2017 is rich and full-fruited with loads of vanilla and cinnamon, leaving a deep, rich and luxurious impression. The palate is plush and sensuous with powerful tannins that drive it to a long, lingering and classy finish. It is clearly very young, but should easily last for 20 years and beyond. This is an emphatic expression of luxurious wine of the highest quality.

 

Abrie Beeslaar from Kanonkop

 

Stellenbosch Cabernet has never been healthier. As the ‘king of grapes’, Cabernet is the back bone of our most long-ageing reds and is, once again, at the centre of SA fine wine. With the formation of the Stellenbosch Cabernet Collective, there is a renewed energy and focus. It is no surprise that Abrie Beeslaar, winemaker at Kanonkop, speaks of the immense effort that has gone into ensuring that the 2014 Kanonkop Cabernet Sauvignon is on par with its famous siblings. Classic in style and deftly handled, this is pure Stellenbosch Cabernet that offers great value and has it all – cassis, earthy complexity and a leafy lift that adds freshness.
