Notes

‘Red and black fruit, pepper plus some subtle smoky, meaty notes. Well defined fruit, lemon-like acidity with fine but still nicely grippy tannins. Classically styled (abv 14% and matured for 15 months in French oak, 20% new). Exciting and unusual – not as rich and ripe as Stellenbosch Shiraz nor as stalky as new-wave Swartland.’ – Christian Eedes, 91/100

The farm Kanolfontein nestles at the foot of Sneeuberg at an altitude of approximately 1500 metres above sea level and 350kms inland from the Indian Ocean, which makes it the highest and coldest wine growing region in Africa. It is blessed with deep scali and clay soils, a result of ancient layers of soil deposited here over time.
