Cape Winemakers Guild

Kanonkop CWG Paul Sauer 2009

The grapes were picked at 24 degrees balling from 25 year old vines. They were de-stemmed, sorted, crushed and fermented for 5 days in open top fermenters. After malolactic fermentation, the blend was made and aged for 24 months in 100% new oak. After ageing, a blend was made of the best barrels that were selected from the lot. Tasting Notes: Dark cherry red colour with black currant, cedar and some bell pepper on the nose. The palate is structured and the fruit carries through to a long, slightly dry, aftertaste.
