Cape Winemakers Guild

Kanonkop CWG Pinotage 2008

20 to 50 year old bush-vines with yields of 3-5 tons/ha were used to make this wine. The grapes were destemmed, sorted, crushed and then fermented in open top “”kuipe” for 4 days. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel, followed by a further 14 months of ageing in 100% new oak barrels. Tasting note: Deep red colour with a strawberry and plum aroma and a touch of vanilla. Dark fruit on the palate with plum and blackcurrant being the focus, and mocha flavours adding to the complexity. The wine finishes with a dry aftertaste.
