Kanonkop Kadette Pinotage Dry Rosé 2018
100% Pinotage. The nose is elegant and floral, with notes of strawberry and raspberry, and hints of granadilla and pineapple. These flavours follow through to the palate which is balanced, the succulent fruit and refreshing acidity make this wine perfect to enjoy as an aperitif. Perfect with anything from the sea, salad, quiche and slight hint of sweetness on the finish lends itself to pair well with spicy dishes.
Kanonkop Estate is situated on the lower slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain in the Stellenbosch Region of the Cape and confidently boasts with some of South Africa’s most premium wines.
Kanonkop is a fourth generation family estate, which was originally purchased by JW Sauer, a cabinet member in the parliament of the Union of South Africa. This estate has since then been handed down from father to son for over 40 years and is now in the talented, capable hands of its current owners Paul & Johann Krige.
The name Kanonkop was derived from a kopje (hillock), from which a cannon was fired in the 17th Century to alert farmers in outlying areas that sailing ships plying the waters between Europe and the Far East had entered Table Bay for a stopover at Cape Town.
