Kanonkop derives its name from the “kopje” (hill) from which a cannon was fired to alert surrounding farmers of trading ships stopping in Cape Town. This was some 300 years ago, but the farm continues to reverberate with the sounds of success achieved through their award-winning wines. Fourth generation estate proprietors, Johann and Paul Krige, have one simple aim: to maintain their “First Growth” status. And with wines such as their famous Pinotage and Paul Sauer consistently being recognized as some of the best reds on the market, their acclaim is well deserved.

This dense full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon shows notes of supple blackcurrant, black plum, cedar wood and spice. The palate offers additional characteristics of pencil shavings, tea leaf and molasses. Balanced with good acidity and integrated ripe tannins, this bottling completes with a lingering finish.

The grapes were hand harvested and hand sorted. They were then fermented in open top concrete vats over a period of five days, with manual punch downs of the cap every two hours around the clock. When fermentation was complete, the wine was run to 225 liter French oak barrels (50% new, 50% second fill) for malolactic fermentation and aging. It was aged in barrel for 24 months and was bottled without fining or filtration.

The classic partner to beef, steak and strong cheeses.
