More Information - De Krans Moscato Red

The grapes are harvested early morning to ensure cool temperatures. After the grapes are destemmed and crushed and pumped into a separating tank where the juice and skins are separated. The juice flows by gravity into a settling tank and is settled out over night. Clear juice is racked into fermentation tanks the next morning and fermentation is started by adding selected yeast. The juice is fermented at 14 degrees Celsius until dry, where after dark red Pinotage wine is added to colour and some Muscadel juice to sweeten. CO2 gas is sparged into the wine for Perlé just before bottling.

Back Story & Wine Information

De Krans Wine Cellar is situated along the upper reaches of the picturesque Gamka River Valley near Calitzdorp. The history of the farm dates back to 1890 when the current owners’ great grandfather bought part of the first farm established in Calitzdorp, named Buffelsvallei (“Buffalo Valley”) on the edge of the municipal boundary of Calitzdorp.

Great on its own or served with fresh summer salads, charcuterie or light meals. Also makes for an interesting pairing with mild curries.
