Pinotage, 2002
1 (1 x 1) 18000ml
Often described as the South African equivalent of a Grand Cru or First Growth, Kanonkop Estate is situated on the Simonsberg mountain slopes on the outskirts of Stellenbosch. Owned by the fourth generation Krige family, Abri Beeslaar is their long-term winemaker who has won International Winemaker of the year an incredible 3 times. The Kanonkop Pinotage has become a consistent flag bearer for the variety in serious clad and is made from bush vines aged up to 64 years old. This Melchior sized Pinotage (18L bottle) is a real collectors’ item.

 Wine Storage

The 2002 Pinotage has a deep garnet core with little aging on the rim. The bouquet is very attractive with scents of dark plum and licorice, dark cherries and melted tar. The palate is medium-bodied with a pleasant grainy texture: white pepper sprinkled over dark plummy fruit and a taut, quite understated salty finish. Abrie Beeslaar described this as one of his most difficult vintages plagued by wet conditions during the season, but his efforts paid off because this is a lovely wine. Drink now-2020.’ Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (October 2013), 90/100
