Kanonkop Pinotage Stellenbosch 2007

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.

I had this wine at Jiko, an african-inspired restaurant at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. It has complex flavors and a smooth finish. I usually drink Cabs and Malbecs, and while this wine was lighter than those varieties, the smooth finish was wonderful. It reminded me of a Petit Verdot I had once.

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.

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.

This softer style Pinotage is a benchmark for the variety from a producer who has helped put the wine on the map. The nose is a melding of plum, cherry, spice and black currant, and on the palate, mocha, plum, spice and cherry mingle, Soft, rich and ... Wine Enthusiast. A Proprietary Blend wine from Stellenbosch in South Africa. 2007 Kanonkop Pinotage 750ml
