About this Item

Cabernet Sauvignon, 2001
1 (1 x 1) 12000ml
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 Cabernet Sauvignon forms part of the 3-tiered, reds only fine offering under the Kanonkop label. This 12L, known as a Balthazar, will have aged and stored the wine beautifully and is bound to turn heads due to the scarceness of fine wine found in such large formats.

Critics Ratings

More conservatively styled than siblings perhaps, now from 30+ yr old vines. 01’s spicy, tobacco, berry bouquet/palate cooperate with firm ripe tannins to offer youthfully fine, sternly elegant profile. 14% alc; 2 yrs Fr oak, half new. Needs & deserves good few years to give of its best.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2005, 4*
