KRONE VINTAGE BOREALIS CUVÉE BRUT 2019
BLEND: Chardonnay 67%, Pinot Noir 27%, Pinot Blanc 6%
TASTING NOTES: Iridescent pale gold. Memories of the sea wash up with oyster shell and sea-breeze aromatics on entry which lead to bright green orchard apples, white blossoms, lemony freshness and a treacle hit of salted caramel. The Borealis presents deft and athletic on the palate with a contained energy and a creamy, fine-textured mousse. Yellow apples, kumquat and naartjie evolve with a touch of lemon meringue framing an iodine core; taut and true to 2019’s growing conditions, the acidity is firm and cleansing, revealing white ginger root on the finish.
FOOD PAIRING: Krone Borealis evokes a sense of discovery in dining – in a pure and natural way. The saline complexity of Krone’s Borealis Cuvée Brut elevates the oceanic, making the ideal pairing for the simplest of seafoods, best served on the beach, such as naked oysters, mussels steamed open with seawater and salt-rubbed harders cooked over the coals. Also, ricotta and roasted tomato bruschetta with pancetta, lime-dressed angelfish ceviche, creamy porcini risotto, fire-roasted lemon-and-black pepper chicken kebabs.
PURCHASE: Krone Vintage Borealis Cuvée Brut 2019 is available for purchase at the estate, online at https://www.kronecapclassique.co.za/collections/vintage-mcc and are widely available nationally at select liquor retailers and grocers.
APPROXIMATE RETAIL PRICE: R172 per 750ml bottle
VINTAGE ONLY CREATION
The making of vintage-only Krone Cap Classique is a commitment to the vintage showcasing the character of each harvest and celebrating a moment in time and place, the unique hallmarks of every vintage as directed by nature: from soil to vine to bottle. Each vintage tells a story. The Krone winemaking team channels the rain, the sun, the wind into structure, complexity and balance – and seals it all with a cork.
TWEE JONGE GEZELLEN
Established in 1710, a national monument with over 300 years of history, Twee Jonge Gezellen in Tulbagh is the treasured home of Krone, a collection of Vintage-Only, terroir-driven Cap Classiques handcrafted in the traditional method in Krone’s historic underground cellar from the finest most distinctive grapes.
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.
