Critics Ratings

'Kanonkop’s Pinotage is a Cape benchmark, which is especially commendable given the size of the 8,000 case blend. This is still young, but it’s beautifully proportioned, showing serious blackberry and plum fruit, succulent tannins and a compact, well-balanced finish.' - Tim Atkin SA Wine Report 2014, 94 Points

'Sophisticated and ageworthy. 2012 shows pleasing fruit richness and structural harmony, its wight balanced by cleansing mineral thread.' - Platter's SA Wine Guide 2015, 4.5*
