One of South Africa's most well-known and favourite reds. The Kanonkop Wine Estate Kadette is a Cape Blend. It contains the obligatory Pinotage, along with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc in smaller percentages.
In appearance, the wine is a dark ruby red. The bouquet includes aromas of blackcurrant, mocha and raspberries while the palate draws you in with blackberries and dark chocolate. The finish is dry and lengthy.
This wine pairs like a dream with a (rather fancy) braai!
The Kadette will develop for 7 to 8 years from vintage.

Medium- to Full-bodied Red,
Soft Fruity Red,
A blend of 50% plus Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
Chip of the old block. I won't be surprised if this is simply the over-run of its more prestigious bigger brothers/sisters - Pinotage and Paul Sauer. This or Alto Rouge is probably best value for money at price point
