More Information - Krone Night Nectar Rose

A red fruit riot; summer strawberries, cranberries and raspberries dipped in powdered sugar. Sweetness and light. Tangy on the palate, pomegranate arils, like jewels, a fine seamed acidity and satin mousse. Succulent citrus woven in tight, sewing in a refreshing stony line. Whipped cream dented with maraschino cherries. Energetic, clean fruit on the mid-palate, the quality of the 2021 harvest on show. The red-berried pinot noir tailors more savoury to the finish, ending lemony fresh with cranberry nuance.

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.

Pairing
The vibrant vivacity of this Cap Classique is a true joy paired with bold, deep flavours; prawns grilled on hot coals with coconut lime basting and peach chutney; its berry-richness harmonious with unctuous, sticky pork belly; spice, texture, cream are all heightened, pair with the pillowy softness of strawberry cream cake, the astringency of raspberry pinwheels, and the fine crunch of rose-water macarons.
