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.
