About this Item

Pinotage, 2000
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 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. 

Critics Ratings

‘Medium ruby. Warm, very ripe aromas of coffee, toffee, leather, mocha, new oak and underbrush, with a roasted aspect. Sweetly oaky, deep flavors of redcurrant, plum and minerals, with hints of leather, iron and fresh blood. Youthful finish features fine, building tannins.’ -  Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, 90/100 (Mar 2003)

‘Corpulent cherry fruit shot through with mint and flashes of spice, trussed in dense dry tannins. 90% new oak for 16 months. Full production out of cellar almost on release.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2003, 4.5*
