Renowned bubbly producers The House of Krone have succumbed to market pressures and produced a still wine from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir (R59.99 a bottle).

Off-pink in colour, it shows citrus through strawberry flavour. Relatively rich and smooth textured with moderate acidity, it’s not unpleasant but entirely straightforward. Cool-drink for grown-ups.

Score: 84/100.

To celebrate the release of the Krone Chardonnay Pinot Noir, The House of Krone offers you an opportunity to become one of five lucky winners of a case of Krone Chardonnay Pinot Noir and Riedel Vinum Montrachet Chardonnay glasses, valued at R500 a pair. Text your name and the last 4 digits of the barcode – taken off any bottle of Krone – to 45622 to stand a chance of being a winner.

  1. I read “succumbed to market pressures” as ‘the commercial imperative’ i.e. using the niche in the market as a ‘cash-cow’ in the same manner as much Sauvignon Blanc is utilized.

  2. Im usually quite a fan of this blend, but i have to say that I did not enjoy Krone’s attempt at all. Too much acidity and lacks balance.
