    Pinotage, a cross of Cinsaut and Pinot Noir, thrives in the Stellenbosch region of South Africa. Kanonkop has long been recognized as producing the benchmark for this varietal. Richly fruited with mouth-coating notes of red and black berries in a medium bodied style, this wine has good structure for ageing and avoids the astringency so commonly found with this particular grape variety.



    Matured in mainly new 225 litre French Nevers barrels for up to 16 months. This is a full-bodied wine, has a deep ruby colour exuding the flavours of red and black berries, raspberry, plum and hints of banana.
