Krone Chardonnay Pinot Noir2017

Still Wine
79% Chardonnay, 21% Pinot Noir

Having mastered the fine art of blending the two noble varieties Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in true Méthode Cap Classique tradition, it was decided it is time to spoil our loyal followers with a still version of this classic combination of grapes. Grand occasions have traditionally been celebrated with a glass of sparkling wine from Krone. But special everyday moments deserve a similar privilege.

Dry blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with a blush of colour Chardonnay 79%, Pinot Noir 21%

Varieties were fermented separately then blended and 40% of the final blend was matured in 2nd and 3rd fill French oak barrels.

The Making

Pale straw with a hint of blush. Upfront aromas of yellow fruit lead to a juicy palate with notes of pineapple and peach. The Pinot Noir component lends itself to a textured mid-palate. A still wine with crisp acidity and elegance with just a hint of delicate red berry fruit flavour on the finish making it a great food wine and decidedly moreish.

Creating Krone MCC

Méthode Cap Classique is a South African term which refers to the creation of bottle-fermented sparkling wines by applying the French méthode champenoise. It’s a complex and time-consuming process but the end result is a world class bubbly.
