Tasting note: ‘Black Label Pinotage’, Kanonkop Wine Estate, 2020

Comments = Concentration, precision and finesse are the key words for this wine. The tannins are silky and blend perfectly into the fruit aromas (black plum). The finish is complex and persistent with well-integrated oak nuances (cloves, vanilla), all enhanced by spicy notes. A very fine wine from one of the oldest and most prestigious vineyards in South Africa. This is probably one of the finest Pinotages I have tasted.

Final Grade = A
