Cape Winemakers Guild

Kanonkop CWG Paul Sauer 2008

Cabernet Sauvignon 69%, Cabernet Franc 22%, Merlot 9% 30+ year-old trellised vineyards with 5 tons/hectare yields are used to produce this wine. The grapes were de-stemmed and sorted before fermentation, which took place in open top “kuipe” for 5 days. After malolactic fermentation, the blend was made and put into 100% new French oak barrels for 24 months. Tasting note: Deep cherry red colour with raspberry, blackberry and a hint of bell pepper on the nose. Rich blackcurrant and dark chocolate flavours add complexity to the velvet-like structure that finishes with a typical dry mouth-feel. This wine will be ready for drinking from 2013 onwards.
