Currently in production from our Kadette brand are the Kadette Red and Pinotage Rosé (dry). Both wines have seen enormous growth locally and internationally, and after much thought, consideration and requests, we have decided to release a new brother to the family; namely the KANONKOP KADETTE PINOTAGE 2012. This fresh pinotage varietal will be available within the next 2-3 months. We anticipate that Pinotage within these quality levels and price points, could well boost growth within the agriculture sector and South African wine industry, as it is a uniquely South African cultivar.
Cellarmaster Abrie Beeslaar is currently “constructing” the Kadette 2012 blend as well as the Kadette Pinotage 2012 which will be 100% Pinotage and barrel matured for 14 months. First samples show great intensity as well as a very typical clean and fruity Pinotage flavour. This new wine will cost between 5 and 10% more than the Kadette Red. It is important to note that the full composite of this wine was vinified on Kanonkop – mechanical sorting, punch down, the lot! The precise release date will be announced as soon as the wine is bottled.
