Even though South Africa belongs to the New World Wine segment, one should consider the history of this country as a wine producer. As early as the 1700s wine has been grown and cultivated in South Africa. The first Wine Estate, the legendary Groot Constantia, was founded in 1685 and is still in existence today. Worldwide South African wines have gained respect and popularity due to style and elegance. South Africa's ability to produce premium wines has attracted the attention of wine connoisseurs worldwide. This is evident by the ever increasing exports from South Africa. Golden Kaan is bottled by KWV, one of South Africa's most prestigious and leading wineries: www.kwv-international.com.
Golden Kaan Merlot
A supple, elegant and very appealing wine with well-integrated tannins, prominent enough to benefit from a year or two of bottle aging to show off the ripe, fleshy black-cherry, chocolate and oak shadings to their best advantage.
Golden Kaan Shiraz
Its bouquet suggests ripe berries with green pepper and spicy flavours. There is excellent follow through onto the palate where the peppery flavours dominate. The well-integrated ripe tannins make it a very accessible wine.
Golden Kaan Sauvignon Blanc
A lively wine with fresh tropical fruit flavours. The freshness is further complimented by well balanced and complexed flavours on the palate.
Golden Kaan Cabernet Sauvignon
Good varietal characteristics with upfront cherry fruit which is in perfect balance with oaky vanilla flavours, due to careful maturation in oak. Excellent follow-through on the palate where the soft/ripe tannins linger on the senses. The wine has good acid structure that balances well with the tannins that contribute to its elegant finish. Ready for immediate enjoyment but will mature well for up to three years.
Golden Kaan Chardonnay
Pale lime-green shades announce the freshness of this wine. Gentle peach and nutty scents lends appeal. Well balanced, with soft wood flavours make this a friendly and easy drinking Chardonnay.
