De Krans Wines releases their 2020 Free Run Chenin Blanc
De Krans recently released their 2020 Free Run Chenin Blanc, a delicious unwooded wine perfect for all Chenin lovers. The unique, boutique style De Krans Free Run Chenin Blanc is packed with fresh ripe tropical fruit, banana, guava and passion fruit flavours, with hints of lime. Aptly known as the Free Run Chenin Blanc, because only the free run part of the juice is used, resulting in more intense fruit flavours, complexity and longevity. In comparison with the 2019 vintage, the 2020 vintage is slightly more complex with an integrated and fresh acidity, resulting in a well-rounded wine with a lingering aftertaste.
This wine is light enough to drink on its own (well chilled), but also pairs well with summer salads and seafood dishes. This Chenin is not only a winner in terms of good value for money, but it also raked in some noteworthy awards including winning Gold at the 2020 GOLD Wine Awards, Silver at the 2020 Ultra Value Challenge and Double Gold at the 2020 Vitis Vinifera Awards.
While they continue to produce award winning port style wines, De Krans Wines has come a long way from being known solely as a port style wine producer with their range expanding far beyond. This includes Portuguese style red wines such as their flagship, the Tritonia Red Calitzdorp Blend and their popular premium Moscato range, including their newly released Alcohol-Free Muscat Nectar. The De Krans 2020 Free Run Chenin Blanc retails for approximately R70 per bottle and forms part of their Classic Varietal Range, which also includes the Wild Ferment Chardonnay, Pinotage Rosé, and Basket Press Cabernet Sauvignon.
