Cape Winemakers Guild

Kanonkop CWG Paul Sauer 2011

Grapes from 26 year old vineyards were picked at 24.5 degrees balling. At the cellar the grapes were destemmed, sorted and crushed into open top fermenters. The skins were punched down every 2 hours for 6 days. After malolactic fermentation the blend was made and the wine went to 100% new French oak barrels for 24 months. Tasting Notes: Black fruit, cedar and spices are prominent on the nose, with a palate that is rich and complex. The wine has a beautiful balance with a long finish that leaves you appetized for more.
