South Africa's finest and most distinguished winery has made these completely unique bottles made 100% from Pinotage, which are said to be indestructible almost like vintage port.

Perfect for vertical tasting of 3 different vintages 2002, 2004 and 2005 in a single lot!

Kanonkop Estate is known for making one of the very best Pinotage wines in South Africa.

The wine has beautiful intense purple hues. The nose is beautifully aromatic, with fragrant aromas of red currants, macerated cherries and cinnamon spice. The palate shows a silky tannin structure, supported by a fine acidity. Subtle vanilla undertones from the integrated oak profile are set next to a fruit explosion of wild blackberries, plums and black berries. An elegant wine with lingering flavors of juicy, dark plums in the finish!

The vines are kept 'bush' style (small bushes) and some of the plants are over 60 years old. The castle uses no irrigation on the bush vines. The yield is therefore all the way down to 35-37 hl. per ha. The vinification is classic with a fermentation in open vats (28-29 degrees) for 4-5 days with a stirring every two hours. After fermentation and a malolactic fermentation, the wine is matured for 16-18 months in medium burnt French oak barriques from Nevers, of which 75% are new and the rest is used a second time. It gives an unusually concentrated and complex wine, a little violent at first in the aroma, but with a very delicious bite at the end, and with really nice harmony. Pinotage from Kanonkop will go well with spicy dishes, e.g. Asian style.

All bottles in great condition. Stored in a temperature-controlled wine cellar

I offer to send bottles in safe special packaging for bottles so that they arrive safely.
