Pinotage* 75cl * 14.5% ABV * Stellenbosch, South Africa
Whilst Pinotage is not everyone's favourite grape variety, Kanonkop are undoubtedly the grape's world experts, producing this highly sought-after wine from 63-year-old unirrigated bush vines grown on the estate. A deep purple hue in the glass, this shows the bold intensity of black plum, red and black berries and a concentration of vanilla and aromatic sweet spice. Full-bodied and concentrated with warmth and ripeness - excellent with slow-cooked stews or barbecued meat. Will keep well for a decade.
