Kanonkop Cabernet Sauvignon 1996

Simonsberg, Stellenbosch

Winemaking and Maturation

Fermentation took place in open top concrete fermenters at 290C. The floating skins were punched down by hand, every 2 hours during fermentation. The juice was drawn off the skins after 5 days. After malolactic fermentation the wine was matured for 24 months in 50% new and 50% second fill 225L French Nevers oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

A complex nose of dark aromas of black berry, cassis, tobacco with cedar and oak spice. The palate is supple and mouth filling – with concentrated black fruit supported by oak spice, roasted nuts and a hint of fresh fynbos. The tannins are firm yet well-knit and integrated.
