Kanonkop Pinotage 2013

Kanonkop Pinotage 2013

Ref: A132113

Matured in mainly new 225 litre French Nevers barrels for up to 16 months. This is a full-bodied wine, has a deep ruby colour exuding the flavours of red and black berries, raspberry, plum and hints of banana.

Kanonkop derives its name from a kopje (hillock) from which a cannon was fired in the 17th century to alert farmers in outlying areas of the Boland that sailing ships plying the waters between Europe and the Far East had entered Table Bay for a stopover at Cape Town. In those days the Cape was, first and foremost, a replenishment station and the farmers would load their wagons and set off for the harbour town to barter their produce, mainly fresh fruit and vegetables, to the sailors and other travellers.

Kanonkop is a fourth generation family estate, which was purchased by J.W. Sauer, who served on the Cabinet of the original Cape Provincial Council after the Union was established in South Africa. His son Paul O. Sauer, who became a Cabinet Minister with the portfolio of Railways and Harbours and then became a senator, took over the reigns from his father and was joined by one of the characters of his day, winemaker Danie Rossouw.

In 1967 former Springbok rugby great, Jan Boland Coetzee, joined the team as a young graduate winemaker from the University of Stellenbosch. Mary Sauer, daughter of Paul Sauer, married Jannie Krige, a rugby administrator at the University of Stellenbosch, and he took early retirement to run the estate. Together with Coetzee they made the first estate bottled wines at Kanonkop in 1973.

With the departure of Coetzee in 1980, Beyers Truter, also of Beyerskloof winery, joined the estate as winemaker and together with Johann and Paul, sons of Mary and Jannie, they continue the traditions developed on this highly prized estate.

La Gitana Manzanilla, Bodegas Hidalgo
La Gitana Manzanilla, Bodegas Hidalgo
“La Gitana” is an absolutely classic example of this unique wine; it is beautifully balanced, fresh and delicate with a “touche” of sea-saltiness and a pure, nutty-fruit zestiness.

Vacqueyras Cuve Doucinello 2011
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.
