In Kanonkop: The Making of a Legend, wine-writer Emile Joubert captures the elements that have led to Kanonkop’s legend-status. These include the influence and vision of Paul Sauer, today shared by his grand-sons Johann and Paul Krige who own and manage the estate. Only having three winemakers since that first 1973 vintage, colourful profiles on Jan Boland Coetzee, Beyers Truter and current cellarmaster Abrie Beeslaar provide insights on the craftsmen behind the wines.
The extraordinary soils, climate and aspect of Kanonkop are depicted through the voices of those working the vineyards, and each of Kanonkop’s classic wines are discussed in detail.
Sumptuously illustrated with modern and historical archival photographs, this is a book for wine-lovers, travellers who enjoy learning of new places and simply anyone interested in discovering the heart of one of the world’s truly special places where people, nature and wine live in harmony.
