Enjoy your Easter menu with the De Krans’ Pinotage Rosé 2020
With a Christmas like no other, many were left celebrating without most of their loved ones. It seems like we have a lot of catching up to do in terms of making the special times count. With Easter around the corner, and the lovely balmy days of late summer, the De Krans Pinotage Rosé is the perfect wine to celebrate with in style. The De Krans Pinotage Rosé 2020 has a delicate, light pink colour with a refreshing, crisp acidity and fruit character of red fruit flavours like strawberries and candyfloss on the palate. This Rosé pairs well with summer salads and seafood dishes, like cob, seafood paella, seared tuna, or a snoek or salmon terrine. The options are endless so make sure you experiment a bit when planning your next feastly menu.
Rosé as a wine style is currently one of the most popular in the wine industry. Equal to the boom of the variety in styles of Chenin Blanc, Rosé also offers a large and delightful range when it comes to colour, cultivar, acidity and sugar levels. It is easy to imagine feeling like a kid in a candy store when it comes to the Rosé section of any retail or liquor store – slightly overwhelmed, but childishly excited and keen to try them all. Having moved from Cabernet Sauvignon to Tinta Barocca, De Krans Wines finally settled on Pinotage three years ago and has not looked back since. The ever-loyal Pinotage grape is not only a wonderful representation of our South African wine heritage, but the grape also embraces the Rosé and elevates the style of wine to new heights when it comes to flavour profile.
This Pinotage Rosé is currently the fastest growing wine in the De Krans Wine portfolio and for good reason – since changing to the Pinotage grape variety the wine has quietly been racking up multiple awards, which include being named a 2020 Trophy Top 5 Pinotage Rosé Winner at the Absa Pinotage Association, as well as winning Gold at the Gold Wine Awards in 2020, Double Gold at the Rosé Rocks 2020 competition and Gold at the 2020 Ultra Value Challenge. The De Krans Rosé not only has the perfect balance of fruit, acidity and freshness, everything you are looking for in a delicious Rosé, but it is also available in retail for only R74 per bottle.
