89 pts Vinous April 2021
The 2020 Pinotage Rosé Kadette has a clean, fresh and quite understated bouquet featuring touches of strawberry and a subtle fish-scale scent. The palate is vibrant and fresh, delivering superb acidity from beginning to end and a slightly waxy texture toward the finish. This is a very satisfying, classy rosé from Kanonkop that comes recommended.
A full-bodied dry rosé, this wine is made by the traditional method of bleeding the juice off the Pinotage grapes after only the slightest skin contact, producing a classic onionskin colour. The floral bouquet leads to notes of cherry and red grapefruit, with a firm succulence and racy freshness on the palate. An ideal food wine.
