Michelangelo Gold for Krone Rosé Cuvée Brut 2015!

With a record number of 1829 entries, it is no mean feat that the Krone Rosé Cuvée Brut 2015 walked away with Gold at the recent awards.

The Michelangelo International Wine & Spirit Awards (2016) now in its 20th year gives local wines the opportunity of being judged by a panel of acclaimed wine experts from around the globe. All judges are hand-picked and serve on the panel by invitation only. The full panel consists of between 22 and 26 international judges.

The awards ceremony for 400 guests was held at the Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West on 26 September.

 

The making of Krone Rosé Cuvée Brut 2015

Traditional grape varieties (Pinot Noir 60% Chardonnay 40%) are hand-picked in the cool of the early mornings at the beginning of harvest season. Only the free run juice is used for this MCC product – ± the first 500 litres per ton – Pinot Noir adding a subtle, sophisticated salmon pink hue. Krone Rosé Brut MCC is bottle fermented and matures on the lees in underground cellars after which, prior to dégorging, the bottles are packed in wooden pupitres (turning racks) and the rémuage (the turning of the bottles) is done entirely by hand.
