With vineyards over 60 years of age, award winning winemakers and a dedication to tradition, Kanonkop has been the leading producer of Pinotage for decades. With a resurgence in the appreciation of Pinotage and its established reputation for longevity, we see these older vintages becoming more sought-after.
The Kanonkop Pinotage 2007 is just starting on its drinking trajectory but, on tasting, it has such poise and grip that it is sure to evolve slowly over the next 10 years. It is wonderfully complex, with tilled earth, pure cassis fruit, finishing with power and freshness. This is a great opportunity to get an outstanding wine at a great price. Whilst ready-to-drink now, it is sure to dramatically increase in value over the next 10 years.

Kanonkop, Pinotage 2007 – R 470
The 2007 Pinotage was cool season. It has a very pure, attractive nose that echoes a modern Pinot Noir in some ways and the oak is beautifully integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with a crisp, saline entry. This is a pointed Pinotage – fresh and perhaps a little angular, but it boasts impressive tension on the finish and should age with style. Very fine. – Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate, 91/100
