Pinotage 2010, Kanonkop

£36.50 per bottle

About this wine

Kanonkop’s 10 year re-release of the 2010 Kanonkop Pinotage is a very complex wine with hints of red fruit which reflects some Pinot Noir elegance and structure.  Back in 2000 winemaker Johann Krige made the bold decision to hold back a number of vintages to show how well Pinotage would age. He has now been releasing limited bottles every 10 years. For comparison we also have the current 2017 vintage.

Food Pairing: Red meat or spicy Asian style dishes

Limited stock of the 2010 vintage

    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."
