Kanonkop Estate Pinotage Simonsberg-Stellenbosch 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Flashy modern style with lots of blueberry and boysenberry fruit layered with sweet mocha and toast notes. Long fruit-filled finish is very polished.

Full bodied wine with a dark purple colour. Intense fruit flavours with soft ripe tannins.

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.

Aus 55jährigen Reben, tiefes Purpurrot, verblüffende Fruchtaromen, würzig und fruchtig, kompakt, aus exzellenter Lage am Simonsberg. Kräftiges dunkles Purpurrot, konzentriert, schwarze Beeren, vielfältich und reich, zart Leder und Pilze, im Gaumen mit viel Kraft und Körper, dann weich und füllig, zeigt Schmelz und Charakter zugleich. Ein tolles Genusserlebnis auf höchstem Niveau!
