Generous, fleshy Viognier with classic low acidity and extroverted flavours of apricot, orange zest, lime, Turkish delight and peach pie - a wonderful experience for the intrepid wine taster!
Beautiful on its own if you like big whites, or else with extravagant foods like lime and saffron scallops or seared tuna in ginger and soy sauce.
This 100% Viognier (a classic French grape with its home in the northern Rhône valley) was grown in a single vineyard and was aged for 10 months in 2nd- and 3rd-fill French and Hungarian oak.
Stellenbosch-based Kanu dates from 1692 when German soldier Matthias Greef was gifted the farm by a local governor. At first he used it to raise sheep and grow medicinal herbs, before sensibly switching to grapes. Current winemaker Johan Grimbeek focuses on South African specialty Chenin Blanc (known locally as Steen) and a selection of warm-climate grapes like Shiraz, Chardonnay and Viognier. 
Kanu is a member of the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative, an alliance between South Africa’s conservation and wine sectors that helps to preserve such exotic creatures as the cape leopard and geometric tortoise. It devotes over a third of its land to native wildlife.
