Cape Winemakers Guild

Kanonkop 2001

62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc, 19% Merlot This wine is a selection of the three best French oak barrels of the 2001 Paul Sauer that was matured in oak for 24 months. The wine was made in the traditional way in open fermentors and colour and flavour was extracted by punching the cap by hand. At a recent tasting of Paul Sauers (20 vintages) from 1981 to 2001, the 2001 vintage was the joint winner with the 1995. Tasting note: A full bodied classic red blend with a dark red colour. An excellent vintage that shows loads of berry fruit on the nose and taste which is well integrated with the oak flavours. A complex wine that will age in the bottle for at least ten years and more.
