Kanonkop Estate has been described by those in the know as being the South African equivalent of a Premier Cru or First Growth. International awards accumulated over more than a decade have gone a long way to substantiate these claims.

Hardly any irrigation is needed due to our ideal soil type and location. Optimum ripeness plays a major role in producing good red wine and on the estate a careful check is done to ensure that the grapes are picked at perfection.

Fermentation took place in open concrete fermenters at 28C. The Cap was punched down manually every 2 hours and the juice was drawn off the skin after 3 days.

Matured for 18 months in 75% new 225 litre French Oak barrels and 25% 2nd fill Barrels.

Food pairing

Red meat or spicy Asian style dishes when young. Better with lamb or mutton when matured.
