Kanonkop Estate has been described by those in the know as being the South African equivalent of a Premier Cru or First Growth. International awards accumulated over more than a decade have gone a long way to substantiate these claims.
Favorite wine I have ever had the pleasure to drink. Absolutely delightful.
I have tasted this wine as a last wine on a tasting of 8 south african bottles. There were some big tasting wines before including shiraz vintages and this one stood out so well it was one of the best tasting wines I have ever had at this price. This is a very full bodied wine, a wonderful taste bomb actually. Dark colour, rich nose that includes all these taste elements. There is some wood but subtle with a good balance between oaky and peppery tones. There is ripe cherry but still enough fresh raspberry soury flavour to keep this big flavour structured. Great after taste. I have no negative comments on this wine, except for the note that you should not serve this with a subtle dish.
