Kanonkop Kadette Cape Blend 2013

Kanonkop Kadette Cape Blend 2013

Sku: 024883

Tasting notes
The wine has a deep ruby, red colour. It shows ripe raspberries, black currant and mocha flavours on the nose and has dark chocolate and blackberry fruit on the palate. This wine has good length with a dry finish and can mature for a further 7-8 years.

 Wine Spectator 87 points (Jun 15 2015)
A light black tea note gives way to sanguine-edged plum and blood orange flavors. Lightly singed herb and vanilla accents stitch up the finish. Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now. 2,600 cases imported.-JM
 Vinous 87 points (Jun 2015)
(14.2% alcohol, vs. 14% for the 2012): Good dark red. Less fruity on the nose than the 2012 version, showing menthol and mint elements. Conveys a cooler character, even a slight tartness. Boasts plenty of energy but comes across as a bit lean.

Wine maker notes
Winemaking at Kanonkop follows the age-old tradition of being made in open concrete fermenters, but with a slight difference, the tanks are wide and shallow, rather high and deep. This ensures maximum skin contact. Only French Nevers barrels are used for breeding, with the exception of a few experimental barrels each year. All cellaring, bottling and labelling is done on Kanonkop.
