In an intense violet, the Kanonkop Kadette Pinotage shimmers in the glass and impresses from the first moment with aromas of fresh plums, mulberries and spices. On the palate, earthy notes are noticeable and are accompanied by nuances of cherries and beetroot. The great tannin structure wonderfully supports the balanced relationship between fruit and fresh acidity. The Kanonkop Kadette Pinotage matured for twelve months in French oak and is a good choice for dishes with dark meat or game. The red wine is especially recommended with grilled meats, but it also goes well with Asian cuisine.

Kanonkop – family-run to the Top of South African Wines

The family Sauer runs the winery Kanonkop in the fourth generation by now. Originally, J W Sauer, a cabinet minister of the South African parliament, had bought it. His son Paul Oliver Sauer took over later, supported by the rugby legend Jan ‘Boland’ Coetzee. In 1980, the now-famous winemaker Beyers Truter joined the team and led Kanonkop to the top of South African wine producers. Today, mostly Abrie Beeslaar plays a great role in the constant success of the winery. By the way, the name Kanonkop goes back to ‘kopje’ which means ‘small hill’. From this hill, a canon used to be fired when merchant ships arrived in the close-by bay. This shot informed the people living in the inland and they loaded their carts, went to the harbour and offered their goods for sale.

More than just a Workplace – Kanonkop as Home

Not only the family Sauer considers the estate Kanonkop as their home. The majority of employees also live on the site which has a nursery, sport grounds for cricket and football as well as schools that are close by. The staff of Kanonkop benefits directly of the success which is why their work is more than just a simple job for them. With great passion and love for detail, they make for excellent wine for many years now.

One of the best Producers in South Africa

Through continuous work on the wine slope and in the wine cellar, Kanonkop has rightly acquired the reputation of being one of the best wineries in South Africa. For many years, excellent wines have been produced here that excite connoisseurs worldwide with their consistently high quality. Early on, the estate has experimented with the grape variety Pinotage, the country’s national grape and South Africa’s successful contribution to the international wine world. It has thus quite early laid the foundation for the especially high quality Pinotage wines from Kanonkop. The grape with all its advantages comes to full effect as it unites the robustness of Cinsault with the noble and fruity character of Pinot Noir.
