Kanonkop CWG Pinotage 2017

Old unirrigated bush vines with yields of 4-5 tons per hectare were used to make this wine. The grapes were destemmed, sorted, crushed and fermented in open top “kuipe” for four days. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel and spent a total of 19 months in barrel.

Tasting Notes: Deep red colour with aromas of plum, cake spice and dark chocolate. The palate has a fruit sweetness that is balanced with savoury spice notes and a long dry finish.

Winemaker: Abrie Beeslaar
