Notes

This is a pre-release offer – orders will be shipped from 3 March 2017.

Tasting notes:
'2015 brought the perfect conditions to ripen Pinotage on Kanonkop. On first tasting, you get an immediate sense of its brooding power. Essentially dark fruited, the florals, red fruit and hint of banana loaf only appear later as the wine opens up in glass. The tannins are ripe with just the right amount of grip. There is a lovely crunchy, red berry lift at the back of the palate ensuring freshness and a long, lingering savoury finish. The 2015 seems immediately more concentrated than the last couple of vintages but there is nothing overdone here. Unapologetically young. Drink 2020 – 2035 and beyond, as we know Kanonkop wines just last and last. – James Pietersen (February 2017).’ – James Pietersen (February 2017)

Fine Pinotage is experiencing an international renaissance and the unbelievably pure and detailed Kanonkop undoubtedly leads the field. You may grow tired of our promotion of the 2015 vintage but, more so than ever before, their 2015 is exceptional. Not only will it reward long-term cellaring, experience tells us this will be a solid wine investment. See more analysis here.

From South Africa’s finest Pinotage producer, we are proud to offer a limited tranche of the 2015 at a special pre-release price of only R300 per bottle. This offer is valid for two weeks or while stocks last. Once released, it is set to sell for R350 a bottle.

The 2015 Kanonkop Pinotage immediately impresses with its sense of power. The nose starts with dark, brooding fruit and is slow to evolve into Pinotage’s typical perfume of florals and earthiness. The palate is weighty with firm, ripe and fruit-coated tannins; finishing dry and savoury. Produced from low-yielding older vineyards of up to 60 years of age, this famous wine comes from the slopes of the Simonsberg, Stellenbosch.

With similar styling and purity to the Black Label 2015, this is one of the offers of the year.
