Krone is Vintage-only Méthode Cap Classique, produced on Twee Jonge Gezellen wine estate in Tulbagh, South Africa.
We believe that each vintage tells a story. Krone Méthode Cap Classique celebrates a unique moment in time and place; expressing our commitment to the vintage and the character of each harvest, selecting only the finest, most distinctive grapes. It’s a journey of discovery that sees each and every vintage borne from nature, to the rest and maturation in the cool of our underground cellar.
Salmon-pink. A floral bouquet of rosewater meets the sweet-sour-salty scent of coastal sour figs. Fresh red fruits—pomegranates, cranberries—take centre stage on the full, soft palate, unfolding into candied orange and white-fleshed nectarine. The complexity of the 2018 vintage is on show here; the drought resulted in smaller harvests that culminated in base wines with pure fruit expressions. There’s a fragility and elegance to the pinot noir. The vivid acidity is cushioned in a fine, creamy mousse, finishing with lingering notes of toasted hazelnuts.
Krone Cuvée Brut Rosé 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.
