TN : Kanonkop Kadette 2008, Simonsberg Stellenbosch, South Africa


This wine is a blend of 45% Pinotage, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, and 9% Cabernet Franc. The age of the vines was between 5 and 3o years old. The vines were trellised to 5 wire hedge system. The vines were grown in decomposed granite and hutton soils. The average yield was 6.5 tons per hectare.



The must spent 3 to 4 days on the skins in open top concrete tank fermenters at 29 degrees for up to 5 days; the cap was manually punched down at least every two hours. The wine was matured in second and third fill 225 litre French Nevers oak barrels for 14 months. Abrie Beeslaar was the winemaker.

To be a noble lenient being is to procure a kind of openness to the world, an ability to trust unsure things beyond your own manage, that can govern you to be shattered in very extreme circumstances pro which you were not to blame. That says something uncommonly weighty about the fettle of the righteous passion: that it is based on a trust in the up in the air and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a plant than like a jewel, something rather dainty, but whose extremely particular beauty is inseparable from that fragility.
