Krone Kaaimansgat Blanc de Blancs 2016
By Christian Eedes, 19 August 2019
At R500 a bottle, the Kaaimansgat Blanc de Blancs 2016 is the top of the range offering from Méthode Cap Classique dedicated cellar Krone. Grapes from Elandskloof situated at 700m above sea level, the wine was left on the lees for 36 months before disgorgement.
The nose shows a pronounced apple character to go with hints of brioche and almond while the palate is lean and steely with a fine mousse. It’s rather an extreme rendition which will divide opinion – I happen to like it.
