Kanonkop Estate Pinotage Blend Stellenbosch Kadette 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine has a deep ruby, red colour. It shows ripe raspberries, black current and mocca flavours on the nose and has dark chocolate and blackberry fruit on the palate. This wine has good depth with a long finish.

Simply enjoyable. With wonderful color and smell, just a slight dryness and a aftertaste i would call somewhat barnyard.(disagree if u wish) So nice to have a good wine at R60. Recommend to any grilled meat.

Reminds me of smoked halibut, or sardines, garnished with dark berries, and some kind of woodsy tastes. The great outdoors, indeed.

On my second tasting, I get more of the herbal factors, like dill and sage.

Mineral gravely nose. Huge dry woodsy tannins balance out the pronounced acidity - with some peat moss, earth, and mineral soil along for the ride. Tastes a bit cloying on the palate. Definitely complex and interesting but not much fruit.

Mint, menthol, banana and tar on the nose. Spicy attack with good acidity. Good mouthfeel, but a harsh astringent tone follows, before the wine finishes on moss, soil and black cherry.

I really like this wine from the start. Nose immediately tells you this is something different. Black Pepper, allspice, and a touch of cedar. First taste is nice cranberry/cherry...boy then gives way to that classic South African leather and white pepper. Finish is long, has a bit of acidic bite, and the Cab Franc comes through beautifully. This is a great wine for the price (any price really). Served with roasted leg of Lamb and was an incredible hit.

Kanonkop’s second label. A blend of Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. This shows all the traits of a great South African wine: plummy cassis, black raspberry, black cherry, grape juice, and earthy flavors wrapped in appropriate levels of tart acidity, ripe tannins, and alcohol.

Kräftiges leuchtendes Rubinrot mit etwas Violett, im Bukett ansprechend fruchtig auch mit Aromen von Zimt und reifen Weichseln, feinfruchtig im Gaumen, super Balance, weiche sehr gute Gerbstoffe, hat eine mittlere Fülle und gute Länge. Sehr gelungen - unschlagbares Preis-Genuss-Verhältnis!
