It’s time once again for Wine of the Month Club! I have sampled some delicious wines over the past few months and now I’m back, ready to introduce you to my favourite wine for September 2016. Say hello to Krone Night Nectar Rosé 2015. The masters of bubbly, Krone’s latest addition to their much-loved range is simply enchanting. Here’s why it’s my pick for Wine of the Month Club this month!
Rose petal pink, fresh and fruity, with a touch of sweetness and a vivacious sparkle, the Krone Night Nectar Rosé 2015 is definitely gearing up to be a girl’s best friend this summer. With aromas of fresh strawberries and cranberries, this new arrival offers a whisper of sweetness with a generous aftertaste. This bottle-fermented and lees-matured sparkling wine, a blend of the traditional Champagne varieties, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, is named in honour of the Krone tradition of night harvesting.
It’s a great addition to any party and is delightfully refreshing. It’s also a super drinkable wine (always a good thing) and you’ll be hard pressed to find a guest at your party who doesn’t like this versatile bubbly. If you loved the Krone Night Nectar Demi-Sec which was launched in 2014, then you have to try this new varietal – it’s the perfect blushing counterpart to its older sibling. As for pairings the Krone Night Nectar Rosé 2015 pairs beautifully with a cheese and bread platter as well as with fruity desserts or lemon tart.
The Krone Night Nectar Rosé 2015 is available at select liquor retailers and grocers nationwide and is priced at approximately R110 per bottle.
