De Krans Basket Press Cabernet Sauvignon 2019: Your red wine for every occasion
The De Krans Basket Press Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 really is the best of both worlds in that it is a full-bodied wine when it comes to flavour profile, yet soft and elegant on the taste, with an integrated tannin structure. The wine pairs perfectly with that impromptu pizza, a variety of pasta dishes, or a good old braai. Not only an all-rounder when it comes to the drinking occasion, but it is also competitively priced, making it a fitting red wine to enjoy regularly. This wine has a typical character of cassis, ripe berries with fresh prunes and cedar spice on the nose. What makes this Cabernet Sauvignon so unique is the use of an old basket press, which enables a softer pressing action, that results in a softer tannin structure and a fruit-driven character of plums, mulberries and dark cherries.
The De Krans Basket Press Cabernet Sauvignon completes the De Krans Classic Varietal Range, a wine collection of classic grape varieties that focuses on a unique, boutique style of winemaking and which embraces well-known and loved cultivars and position them within an affordable price range. The Classic Varietal Range also includes the De Krans Free-Run Chenin Blanc, Wild Ferment Chardonnay and Pinotage Rosé.
De Krans Wines is situated in Calitzdorp in the Klein Karoo region on the scenic Route 62 and nestled between Ladismith and Oudtshoorn. While De Krans Wines remains synonymous with producing quality and award winning port-style wines, they have managed to successfully expand their focus and range to developing unique and award-winning dry, red wines made of Portuguese grape varieties. This includes their Touriga Nacional, Tritonia Red (Calitzdorp blend) and A Twist of Fate. They are also pioneers in South Africa of the popular Premium Moscato Perlé range, which includes their recently released Premium Rosé Moscato Perlé.
The De Krans Basket Press Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 retails for approximately R79 per bottle in select retail outlets nationwide.
