Black Label Pinotage 2018, Kanonkop

£140.00 per bottle

About this wine

Kanonkop’s iconic Black Label Pinotage is produced in limited quantity from 65 year old bush vines. Deep purple colour, with intense perfumed top notes of rose petals, cinnamon spice, black cherries and dark chocolate. A decadently rich and layered wine, with bold flavours of black cherries, dark plums and wild bramble fruit. The seamlessly integrated oak and velvety tannins add firm support and structure to the sultry fruit core. A big, complex and powerful wine – the proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove!

Ageing potential: 15 – 20 years from vintage.

Food Pairing: Aromatic curries, barbequed venison and beef, grilled game fish such as tuna, roast duck with berry sauce and pork belly.

    string(569) "South Africa’s very own variety, created in the early 20th century by crossing Pinot Noir and Cinsault. A variety which the home nation has taken to its collective heart, in the right hands and with gentle, delicate handling in the winery, Pinotage is a lush, fruit driven, black cherry jam and white pepper styled variety. When the focus is more on a traditional feel, extended barrel maturation can bolster the variety into creating more of a Bordelais clone. Some great examples exist, famously from Kanonkop and Kaapzicht Estate; both to be found in Stellenbosch."
