Kanonkop Kadette Pinotage 2018

Regular price $20.95

Tasting Notes:  Intense purple hues with lively aromas of fresh plums, mulberries and allspice, followed by a meaty undertone. The palate displays an inherent earthy touch, with flavours of crimson beetroot and maraschino cherries. Coherent balance between the fruit and the fresh acidity, with muscular support from the tightly woven tannin structure.

Perfect with burgers, barbequed meat, venison stew, Thai and Chinese cuisine.

Reviews

2018 NEAL MARTIN REPORT

“The 2017 Kadette Pinotage spent 12 months in second and third-fill French barriques. It has an attractive, simple, slightly earthy mulberry and blackberry nose. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chewy tannins, clean licorice-tinged black fruit and an almost Bandol-like finish. This is a fine introduction to Pinotage.”
