More Information - Krone Rose Brut

Ethereal pink floating on silver. Wisps of zesty orange thread through. Aromatics of luminous red fruit: redcurrants, raspberries, spring strawberries, limpid and as pure as crystal. Purity and light characterise this vintage. The acidity faceted like a jewel, a hallmark of the high diurnal swings of the Tulbagh region and the cool 2022 growing season. Through this the mousse is persistent and fine, adding silk to its layers as the strawberries become more framboise to the finish, succulent and inviting, roasted hazelnuts and baking pastries taper elegantly to a pin-point dry 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.

Pairing
Krone Rosé Cuvée Brut delights in food that favours honest expression; from a simple picnic with slivers of charcuterie, crusty sourdough bread, ripe, melty Camembert. A tug-of-war between density and weightlessness, the structure lends itself to the refined too; salmon with crispy skin crackling and wild black rice to rolled porchetta, and duck with cherries
