Kanonkop Kadette 2020
This succulent Cape blend from South Africa's premier Pinotage producer exhibits ripe, luscious dark berry flavors that interlace with hints of mocha and pleasant herbal and spice notes. A distinctive smoky, earthy character makes this supple, full-bodied red the ultimate grilling/tailgate wine.
With a reputation for producing some of the Cape’s finest red wines, the heralded Kanonkop Estate is often referred to as a South African "First Growth." The fourth generation family farm, presently run by brothers Johann and Paul Krige, has been owned and operated by the Sauer-Krige family since the early 1930s. The name Kanonkop is derived from a "kopje" (small hill) on the property, from which a cannon was fired in the 17th century to announce the arrival of the Dutch East India Company’s trading ships at Table Bay.
