Cape Winemakers Guild

Kanonkop CWG Pinotage 2010

These old bush vine vineyards were harvested by hand at 25 degrees balling. The grapes were de-stemmed, sorted and crushed. They were then fermented for 3 days in open top fermenters and punched down every 2 hours. The wine completed malolactic fermentation in tank and then spent 14 months in new French oak barrels before bottling. Tasting Notes: Very dark red colour with purple rim. The nose is packed with dark fruit, spice and some mocha flavours from the oak. The palate is rich and structured, with the fruit and spices lingering on. Enjoy with a wide range of dishes, from duck to spicy Asian style dishes.
