#140 Kanonkop Kadette Pinotage 2016
Where the big guns roar
Kanonkop is a huge deal in South African wine. Their little website slogan is “where the big guns roar”. Now, no one write something like that without sounding a little self-important, but if anyone can get away with it, it’s Kanonkop.
Paul Sauer, Jan Boland Coetzee, the world famous Beyers Truter (who went on to found Beyerskloof) and of course Kanonkop’s current winemaker, the incredible Abrie Beeslaar are all part of a rich estate history that makes Kanonkop essential reading for anyone interested in South African wine.
🔬 The wine itself is 100% Pinotage from Stellenbosch. Fermentation took place in open concrete fermenters at 28°C. Punchdowns took place manually every two hours, and was the juice drawn off the skins after three days.
