Krone Borealis Cap Classique 2019

12% abv

Vol- 75cl

Krone Vintage-Only Cap Classique is handcrafted in the traditional method on the 300-year-old Twee Jonge Gezellen wine estate in Tulbagh.
Yellow apples, kumquat and naartjie, a touch of lemon meringue frame an iodine core; taut and true to 2019’s growing conditions, the acidity is firm and cleansing. Evoking a sense of discovery in dining, in a pure and simple way, such as mussels steamed open with seawater, elevating the oceanic.
Traditional grape varieties (chardonnay and pinotnoir) are harvested in the cool of the night. Only the free-run juice is used for this Cap Classique: the first 500 litres per ton. Krone Borealis is bottlefermented and then matures on the lees in the underground cellar.
