Kanonkop Estate Wine Pinotage 2014


Pinotage is a South African speciality, and this wine's a serious version of it from Simonsberg within Stellenbosch.  A deep intensity purple in colour, the 2014 pinotage opens to aromatics of tobacco, earth, redcurrant, sweet cherries and cedar.  The palate has light tannins, a full body and very good length on the finish. Overall, this is a very good wine due to its length, fruit which is ripe without being overweight.  This may well be the best pinotage I have tasted.  (Region: Simonsberg, Stellenbosch, South Africa, Rating: Very Good, Would I buy it based on this tasting? Yes, Drink: now to 2025, Tasted: June, 2017)
