More Information - Krone Night Nectar

The scent of waxy honeycomb and crushed limes. The cinnamon smoke of apple pie, cloves. Golden apples, baking citrus and white roses spill over into the plush, fruity palate. The acidity pulls in hexagonal; an angular freshness shaped by granite mountain soils and the cool conditions of the 2021 vintage. Lime, honey and juicy apples pool alongside creamy white pear and peach. White river pebbles follow a stony spine to nectarines bursting with juice. An indulgent note of lemon drop opulence folds into salted caramel before the refreshing, poised finish

Back Story & Wine Information

The making of vintage-only Krone Cap Classique is directed by nature: from soil to vine to bottle. Our winemaking team channels the rain, the sun, the wind into structure, complexity and balance—and seals it all with a cork. The site-specific rocky soils of Tulbagh are like nowhere else in the Cape Winelands. Family-owned, the Rands family purchased the farm in 2012. Brother and sister, Svend and Abigail are involved intimately in all aspects of the estate, from vineyard plantings to marketing. Cellarmaster Rudiger Gretschel leads the winemaking division, a renowned Cape winemaker he pours his considerable knowledge into both the viticulture as well as the vinification, working seamlessly alongside Cap Classique specialist and head winemaker Stephan de Beer.

A dance of brightness and opulence, Night Nectar demands rich, indulgent dishes. Creamy and fragrant butter chicken curry hits all the right notes as does smoked fish croquettes with lemon aioli. Refreshing yet plush, it pulls you into the realm of the sweet too. Think honeycomb and salted caramel or lemon, poppy seed and goats cheese cheesecake
