FRIDAY 11 SEPTEMBER 2020  6.30PM:

KANONKOP WINE ESTATE, ELGIN, SOUTH AFRICA

Kanonkop Wine Estate Stellenbosch South Africa

 

Kanonkop is one of Stellenbosch's best-known wine estates - lauded for its legendary Pinotage and Cabernet blends.  To many wine lovers worldwide, Kanonkop is considered equivalent of a Premier Cru or First Growth of South Africa. 

This much-loved estate is currently run by brothers Johann and Paul Krige - the 4th generation custodians of this family estate on the foothills of the beautiful Simonsberg mountains.  The estate is often praised for its consistency year after year and the incredible purity, finesse and structure of its wines - which derive from the ancient decomposed granite soils, cool air from the Atlantic and old dryland vineyards.

The name Kanonkop derives from the nearby hillock above the estate where, during the C17 & C18, a cannon was fired to let the local farmers know that the ships were sailing into Table Bay - so that they could load up their carts with fresh vegetables and fruit to sell to the passengers and sailors at the harbour.

Winemaker Abrie Beeslaar (at Kanonkop since 2002) was named International Winemaker of the Year in 2018 for the third time, by International Wine & Spirit Competition
