2014 Kanonkop Pinotage Stellenbosch

SKU #1256412

"In my book, Kanonkop is the king of Pinotage," raves Decanter magazine. (11/2015) This fourth-generation estate has a reputation for being a "first growth" of Stellenbosch. In 2013, they were awarded the title of "South African Producer of the Year" by the International Wine and Spirits Competition. Perfect for tagliatelle with a rich, meaty ragu sauce, Kanonkop's Pinotage exudes aromas of ripe red berries with underlying hints of mocha. It has the tannic structure to age for another 8 years, though it's delicious right out of the gate.

South Africa

- Now that it has adopted a multi-racial attitude, and now that the world has embraced its government and its exports, South Africa has become a major wine producer. Unfortunately, South Africa has had a difficult time joining the ranks of competitive winemaking countries. During the anti-apartheid sanctions in the 1980s, South African wine was dealt the huge blow when it was removed from the international market, and for political reasons it was quite difficult for wine producers to market wine to the black majority. Things are finally looking up for the wine industry here, and quality has never been higher. South Africa produces a grape cloned from Pinot Noir and Cinsault, called Pinotage, which is the country's unique varietal. Chenin Blanc (known as Steen) makes up one-third of its vines. Cabernet, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Shiraz are becoming increasingly popular as are Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Click for a list of bestselling items from South Africa.
