De Krans Pinotage Rosé

De Krans Pinotage Rosé


Winemaker: Louis van der Riet
Appellation: Calitzdorp
Grape varietal: Tinta Barocca
Background
De Krans Wine Cellar is situated along the upper reaches of the picturesque Gamka River Valley near Calitzdorp. The history of the farm dates back to 1890 when the current owners’ great grandfather bought part of the first farm established in Calitzdorp, named Buffelsvallei (“Buffalo valley”) on the edge of the municipal boundary of Calitzdorp.
The first grapes were planted in 1936 mainly for the production of raisins and some sweet wine. In 1964 the present cellar was built and De Krans quickly became well-known for quality ports and Muscat sweet wines, as well as dry table wines.
The current owners and winemaker now take advantage of the unique Calitzdorp terroir to produce great quality Cape ports and table wines from a whole range of interesting grape varieties.

Vineyards
East – West facing vines planted during 1999 on Gamka sandy loan soil.  Vines are flood irrigated.

Winemaking
Grapes are harvested mid to late Januaryat 21-22 degrees balling.  Picked early morning the grapes are crushed and the juice is drained from the skins immediately.  The wine is fermented for over 3 weeks at low temperatures before it is bottled.
