A blend of 37% Pinotage, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, the 2018 Kadette Cape Blend begins with juicy red and black fruit essence over dusty purple flowers with plum skin, blackberry and hints of spice on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is open and expressive in the mouth with a balanced structure and fruit that is more red-berried, with plum and cherry essence. Ending with a lingering finish and lifting tannins, this represents a delightful wine that delivers well for the price. Give it a try.

Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

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 forover 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.
