Described as South Africa’s Premier Grand Cru or First Growth, Kanonkop’s red wines are world-renowned for their ageability and sheer quality. Winemaker at this fourth generation family estate is Abri Beeslaar, who has won International Winemaker of the year an incredible 3 times. The 2003 Pinotage was produced from 60 year old bush vines from one of the great vintages in the past 2 decades.
‘This is softening now, with mulled plum and fig notes laced with hints of tobacco, chestnut and dark earth. Picks up a rustic hint, but stays polished enough on the finish.’ Wine Spectator, 90/100
