Awards, Reviews and other Notes

4 ½ Stars 2017 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Quintessential Kanonkop cabernet. Handsomely structured with fine-toned muscle, imposing tannic grip framing subtle walnut, dark fruit intrigue. Ageworthy classic from excellent vintage. 50% new oak.
91 pts Wine & Spirits Feb 2018
This has the tense concentration of a mountain-grown cabernet, its cool red currant flavors floral and zesty upfront, then firming up as the tannins come in on the end. Those tannins are still potent, the wine needing bottle age to mellow.
90 pts James Suckling August 2017
Pleasant grassy notes and baking spice aromas. Balanced and fruit-forward, thin tannins and quite round on the palate. Lots of black berries here. Enjoy now.



Winemaker Notes

Full bodied, deep ruby red colour. Attractive black currant and mocha flavours with a complex palate and long, dry finish.
