Abrie Beeslaar has been the winemaker at the world famous Kanonkop estate since 2002 and he is now making a small amount of his own, very special, single vineyard Pinotage. With a succession of fabulous Kanonkop wines behind him and the accolade of 2008 International Winemaker of the Year, Abrie's pedigree is first class and for him to put his own name on this wine shows how important this is to him.
From its vibrant, crimson colour to the wonderful enticing nose, everything about this vintage shows why Good Ordinary Claret is our bestselling wine by some margin. It also amply displays why Red Bordeaux (Claret) is such an endearing favourite with wine lovers everywhere. Aromas of bramble fruit, a touch of cassis and warm woody notes on the nose give way to deliciously rounded, silky fruit on the palate. Immediately enjoyable, this is perfectly balanced with a long, moreish finish.
Produced from top quality organic fruit - rich, ripe plum and cherry characters combine with spice and gentle tannins. This is a classic Rioja, full-flavoured with dark fruit and spiced mulberry characters. Perfect for a supper around the fire!
2012 Vintage: "I've never quite understood why this deep and juicy, brambly jam and blackberry-flavoured red from old-vine garnacha by the Bodegas Borsao co-operative has stayed so cheap despite widespread critical acclaim. No matter: this is a genuine example of a wine that punches way above its weight." David Williams, The Observer, 19th January 2014
A deeply coloured, medium-bodied, spicy red with aromas of ripe plum and black cherry. The palate combines warm, juicy red fruit flavours with savoury, lightly smoky characters, a hint of bitter chocolate and nip of tannin on the finish.
