About this Item

Black Label Pinotage, 2006
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

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 Black Label was introduced as a limited-edition bottling with this 2006 the first vintage, cementing the team’s confidence in South Africa’s own red variety. Black Label is made from one of the oldest Pinotage vineyards in South Africa, one planted in 1953 on a site that has over the years proved to produce fruit of specific excellence and deemed special enough to be bottled under an own label.

Critics Ratings

’60-year-old vines. 1 500 bottles made, which sold out in three hours. The complexity is very evident, medicinal, meat. Great craft. Impressive. One to silence the doubters?’ - Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20".

'Shy at first, but time in the glass draws out wafts of roasted coffee, wet earth, toasted exotic spices and dried red fruit. In the mouth there is still great complexity and concentration but the once forthright flavours are dialled down low. Dried leaves, cured meat, polished leather and ripe red plum flavours are carried on supple tannins and fresh acidity.’ - Tina Gellie, Decanter, 93/100 (May 2022)
