Kanonkop CWG Pinotage 2009

100% Pinotage 20-50 year old bush vines with yields of 3-5 tons/hectare were used to make this wine. The grapes were de-stemmed, sorted, crushed and then fermented in open concrete “kuipe” for 4 days. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel and was then treated to a further 14 months of barrel ageing. Tasting note: Deep red colour with a strawberry and plum aroma with a touch of vanilla. Dark fruit on the palate with plum and blackcurrant being the focus, with mocha flavours adding complexity. The wine finishes with a dry aftertaste. Drink from 2014 onwards.
