    Pours a very deep purple colour. Blackberry and plum flavour with added spice yet an earthy streak throughout and beyond drinking yet not as much as other Pinotages I have before. Although the bottle says hint of banana, I don't personally get the taste but I certainly get the dry mouth quality that I would get after eating one.

    Right... Now I've tasted quite a few SA pinotages over the years and found it a hard variety to fall in love with until now. I tasted this at a friends house about a year ago. Next day I owned 16 cases. If you like expressive Syrah's, this will be your next favourite toy. And yes, I'm down to 12 cases (14.03.09), but I'm trying to be good.

    Dark red. Sexy, floral aromas of dark raspberry, strawberry and blackberry; rather pinot-like in its perfume. Then rich and silky but gripping, with concentrated, sappy flavors of black cherry and mocha energized by harmonious acidity. Finishes wi... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Proprietary Blend wine from Stellenbosch in South Africa. 2009 Kanonkop Pinotage 750ml

    Full bodied wine with a dark purple colour. Intense fruit flavours with soft ripe tannins.

    Aus 55jährigen Reben, tiefes Purpurrot, verblüffende Fruchtaromen, würzig und fruchtig, kompakt, aus exzellenter Lage am Simonsberg. Kräftiges dunkles Purpurrot, konzentriert, schwarze Beeren, vielfältich und reich, zart Leder und Pilze, im Gaumen mit viel Kraft und Körper, dann weich und füllig, zeigt Schmelz und Charakter zugleich. Ein tolles Genusserlebnis auf höchstem Niveau!

    Pinotage, a cross of Cinsaut and Pinot Noir, thrives in the Stellenbosch region of South Africa. Kanonkop has long been recognized as producing the benchmark for this varietal. Richly fruited with mouth-coating notes of red and black berries in a medium bodied style, this wine has good structure for ageing and avoids the astringency so commonly found with this particular grape variety.
