Cape Winemakers Guild

Kanonkop CWG Paul Sauer 2016

Grapes from 28 year old vineyards were picked at 24 degrees Balling. At the cellar the grapes were destemmed, sorted and crushed into open top “kuipe”. The skins were punched down every two hours for five days. After malolactic fermentation, the blend was made and the wine went into 100% new French oak barrels for 24 months.

Tasting Notes: Perfume, red berries and floral notes are prominent on the nose, with a friendly and elegant palate. This is a classic example of this wine and also representative of the vintage.

This wine will be ready for drinking in 2021.

Winemaker: Abrie Beeslaar
