Located on the slopes of Simonsberg, Kanonkop Estate is home to many of South Africa’s premium wines. The Estate’s unique name “Kanonkop” is derived from the word kopje, meaning hillock. In the 17th Century, a cannon was commonly fired from here to warn farmers of foreign sailing ships arriving in Cape Town.
Tasting: notes: The Kanonkop Pinotage 2012 offers an abundant combination of scents, from red fruit to mocha. The wine is decadent yet savoury, and definitely worth a try.
