Krone Vintage Rosé Cuvée Brut 2019

Blend:  pinot noir 92%, chardonnay 8%

Tasting Notes: Gossamer pink. Aromatics of frais de bois (wild strawberries), the strawberry edged in papaya pip spice (similar to black peppercorn spice). Ethereal notes of rosewater skate along denser tones of crushed orange peel. Pinot noir led, the terroir is vividly sketched on the palate, sunbaked stones, the perfect ripeness of a gentle summer, strawberries, white peach, tangy cranberry freshness. The acids are lemony and soft, light and buoyant. A deeper tug into fresh cream, a layered mouth-coating mousse, finishing with lingering notes of toasted hazelnuts.

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

Purchase: Krone Vintage Rosé Cuvée Brut 2019 is available for purchase at the estate, online at https://www.kronecapclassique.co.za/collections/vintage-mcc  and is widely available nationally at select liquor retailers and grocers.

Approximate Retail Price: R190 per 750ml bottle.
