Kanonkop, Black Label Pinotage 2017

RRP £130

Nothing ticks all the fine wine boxes like Kanonkop Black Label – a majestic elixir marrying New World hedonism with Bordeaux structure. The bouquet bursts with maraschino cherry, kirsch liqueur, cloves, blueberry, earthy mulberry and plum coulis. The alluring palate offers sweet bramble fruit, cut hedgerow, freshly tilled Stellenbosch earth and kirsch chocolates. The standout quality is the bright, crunchy, saline acidity.
