Legend records that Bacchus, God of Wine in Greek mythology, fell in love with Ariadne, daughter of the King of Crete. In order to uplift her spirits and prove his love to her, he threw her golden crown, a circlet of gems, into the heavens where it remained to shine forever as the dainty constellation of stars called CORONA BOREALIS. Corona means crown, as does Krone – hence KRONE BOREALIS a little poetic licence used to describe this Méthode Cap Classique being full of ‘stars.
Elegant, iridescent gold. Oyster shell and chalky limestone character leads to pineapple, fresh yellow apple and salted caramel flavours with a fine, persistent mouth filling mousse. Creamy textures on the mid-palate with some baked piecrust, and a refreshing, tangy finish.
Naked oysters, ricotta and roasted tomato bruschetta with pancetta, lime-dressed angelfish ceviche, creamy porcini risotto, fire-roasted lemon-and-black pepper chicken kebabs
Traditional grape varieties (Chardonnay & Pinot Noir) are harvested in the cool of the night. Only the free-run juice is used for this MCC product - ± the first 500 litres per ton. Krone Borealis is bottle-fermented and then matures on the lees in the underground cellars.
Vintage-only Krone Méthode Cap Classique is a collection proudly created at the fusion of heritage and innovation. Twee Jonge Gezellen farm in Tulbagh is the home of Krone MCC.
