Critics Ratings

'Quintessential Kanonkop Cabernet. Handsomely structured with fine-toned muscle, imposing tannic grip framing subtle walnut, dark fruit Intrigue. Age-worthy classic from excellent vintage.' - Platter's SA Wine Guide 2016, 4.5*

'The Kanonkop Cabernet style favours elegance over extraction, and that’s certainly the case here in this classic, refined, and well balanced expression of the grape. Subtle, integrated oak, bright acidity and fine-boned tannins are complemented by leafy, floral notes. Effortless stuff. Drink: 2016-24' - Tim Atkin SA Wine Report 2016, 93/100
