Vinification Details

  • The wine spent three to five days on the skins in open fermenters at 28°C, with the cap punched down manually every 2 hours. Matured for 12 months in 2nd- and 3rd-fill 225L French Nevers oak barrels.


  • Listed as a ‘first growth' by Tim Atkin MW, Kanonkop is situated on the lower slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain in Stellenbosch, from where it produces award-winning wines. A fourth generation family estate, it was originally purchased by JW Sauer (a cabinet member in the parliament of the Union of South Africa) and has been in the family ever since, now in the talented hands of its current owners Paul and Johann Krige and winemaker Abrie Beeslaar.

Regional Information

  • Owing to the prehistoric origins of Simonsberg and other mountain ranges in the area, the Cape can lay claim to having some of the oldest vineyard soils in the world.

Bought for Xmas in the 25% off for 6 bottles deal. We were naughty and opened it for Sunday dinner yesterday......................I am now having to go out and replace it..........yummy yummy yummy! Bursting with berry flavour with a lovely soft tanin finish. I hate oaked wines, this was delicious.

I used to buy this at another Supermarket but they

4 stars

I used to buy this at another Supermarket but they stopped stocking it . Pleasantly surprised that Tesco are now selling it .Dark Berry fruits not over oaked with a hint of spice, reminiscent of a decent Cote du Rhône . Good value at £11 and even better on the 25% off six bottle deal , you won’t be disappointed . If Tesco ever stock Kanonkop’s Pinotage, make sure that you are at the front of the queue - JS Cambridge.

Fantastic wine
