Iconic vintages of Kanonkop Pinotage

2017 CWG and the stellar 2009

A strict selection of the oldest Pinotage vines on Kanonkop by Abrie Beeslaar yielded just 70 cases of the 2017 Cape Winemakers Guild Pinotage. Much like the Black Label, it offers astonishing depth, purity and structure in 2017 – a dazzling vintage that will mature for 2 decades. In contrast, it is more tightly wound with lower alcohol, offering an extra level of finesse. At less than a tenth of the production, and offered at 16% less than the Black Label, it offers a sound investment.

When that old vineyard hits the right notes, everything is seamless and balanced, and the 2017 is one of those vintages.’ – Abrie Beeslaar

Kanonkop Pinotage

We also have 20 cases of the legendary 2009 Pinotage available. 2009 is a benchmark vintage that may only be trumped by 2015 and 2017 in time. At 10 years old, the purity of fruit is balanced by silky tannins and Kanonkop’s typical savoury complexity – a treat over the festive season.
