Vinous Reviews 2019 – Neal Martin

Kanonkop Kadette Pinotage Rose 2019 – 86 points The 2019 Kadette Pinotage Rose was crushed and immediately pressed.

The fresh, focused palate is well balanced with crisp acidity and a […]

During bud break, we had very warm weather and cold weather immediately after that. This had a negative effect on the evenness of the budding and […]

Temperatures in January were relatively cool compared to other years, which is great for ripening and quality, but heat waves started hammering the vineyards from 3 Feb right through till the end of the month.

Neal Martin from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate Kanonkop Review

Neal Martin from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate Kanonkop Review

KANONKOP REVIEW Readers should refer to my 2015 South Africa report for more background information on Kanonkop. As I have said before, whenever discussing South Africa’s long-standing stalwart estates, a lot of young winemakers can be quite dismissive, citing poor winemaking practices and their zeal for high volume/low quality wines that did much to tarnish […]

The Next 12 Months

It seems consumers in general are holding onto their cash (except politicians!). Financial commentators, amongst others, are arguably more to blame for this downward trend in consumer confidence. Kanonkop has however seen a steady growth year after year which we believe is due to the credibility of the Kanonkop brand. Our main strategy remains to […]
