With a reputation for producing some of the Cape’s finest red wines, the heralded Kanonkop Wine Estate is often referred to as a South African “First Growth.” The fourth generation family farm, run by brothers Johann and Paul Krige, has been owned and operated by the Sauer-Krige family since the early 1930s.

This tasty Cape blend from South Africa’s premier Pinotage producer displays ripe, juicy flavors of dark berry, coffee and plum interlaced with pleasant herbal and spice notes. A distinctive smoky, tarry character makes this supple, full-bodied red the ultimate grilling/tailgate wine. Time to dive into the ribs, skip the beer, and wash down finger-lickin' good barbecue with Kanonkop Kadette.
