Kanonkop Paul Sauer Magnum 2020


Product Notes

TASTING NOTES This classic wine with a saturated ruby colour, is complemented by a dense and interwoven complexity of tilled earth, bouquet garni, with red- and black currant and cedar. The wine is refined, with an elegant structure, precise tannins, and together with the clever use of new oak, creates the perfect backdrop to host the complex fruit spectrum. A long, and youthful finish.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS The preceding winter had sufficient rain and cold units. Throughout the harvesting period the weather remained favourable, with relatively warm days, no significant heatwaves and cool night temperatures. WINEMAKING / MATURATION Fermented 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 100% new 225L French Nevers oak barrels.
