Characteristics of Kanonkop Kadette Cape Blend

Kanonkop Kadette Cape Blend is a barrel-aged red wine made by the Kanonkop winery with the Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Pinotage red varieties in the South African Coastal Region (Cape Town).

Kanonkop is a family winery located in Simonsberg-Stellenbosch. A denomination of origin that is popularly known as “the red wine bowl” for being the area that produces the best red wine in the country. The name is inspired by the hillock (kopje) that a cannon (kanon) would be fired from in the 17th century to alert the locals that European ships were arriving. Kanonkop is now run by the fourth generation, who are taking advantage of the area’s geology and climate to continue producing red wines with a great international reputation.

Kanonkop Kadette Cape Blend comes from old vines over 65 years old. They are cultivated as shrub vines; a traditional practice that is used to make the most of the sunlight and regulate growth. They also use the most innovative techniques to guarantee the optimum levels of sugar, acid and PH throughout the entire life cycle. The whole process is carefully monitored and culminates in harvesting at the optimum point of ripeness.

When the Kanonkop Kadette Cape Blend grape reaches the winery, it is vinified following the ancient tradition of being placed into open concrete tanks at a controlled temperature of between 28 and 30oC. It macerates there with skins for 3 to 7 days to get the best extraction. Finally, the wine ages for 12-14 months in 225-litre French oak barrels being used for the second and third year.

Kanonkop Kadette Cape Blend is one of this winery and the Coastal Region’s flagship wines. A blend of varieties that demonstrates how perfect the Cape Town area is for making red wines.
