Kanonkop Wine EstateKadette Cape Blend 2019
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.
