TASTING NOTE: The name Kanonkop was derived from a kopje (hillock) from which a cannon was fired in the 17th century to alert farmers in outlying areas whenever sailing ships were approaching. This mountain-grown pretty pink wine shows ripe strawberry and exotic tropical fruit, good texture and a crisp, dry finish. Pair with barbecued chicken or creamy pasta salad.
