De Krans Wine Cellar, situated in Calitzdorp along the Route 62, has again received a 5-star rating, this time for its Cape Vintage Reserve 2018 port-style wine in the latest edition of the authoritative and internationally recognized Platter’s by Diners Club South African Wine Guide 2021, due for release this month. The results were announced on Wednesday, 11 November.
According to winemaker Christoff de Wet the Cape Vintage Reserve is a big wine full of ripe dark fruit notes of plum, mulberry and black currents. The wine is well-rounded by smooth cacao and smoky undertones. It has firm tannins that will ensure an excellent maturation potential for many decades to come. The perfect port to enjoy with most baked desserts, well matured cheeses, or simply on its own. Available at most retail outlets at R375 per bottle.
The Tritonia Red 2020, Muscat Blanc 2020 and Cape Tawny Limited Release were each awarded 4½ stars. Four-star ratings were awarded to the Tinta Roriz 2018, Touriga Nacional 2018, Tritonia White 2018, Zero Dosage Méthode Cap Classique, Cape Vintage 2018 and the Original Espresso, respectively.
