De Krans Cape Vintage 2019 is produced from Portuguese grape varietals Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barocca, Tinta Amarella, Tinta Roriz and Souzoa. Selected blocks are hand-picked mid to late February at 26° Balling. Bunches are destemmed, crushed and rapidly cooled in an open fermenter. Grapes are left to spontaneously start fermenting. Later the skins are pressed, the juice separated and at desired sugar levels, fermentation is stopped by adding alcohol to the juice. The wine spends 12 months in concrete tanks before it is left to mature for a further 10 months in 30 to 40 year old 300-litre barrels. Residual sugar: 95.7g/l. Bottled at 19%. (Bottle size 750ml) 

Nose: Beautiful aromatic nose of violets, red berries, vanilla and dark chocolate.

Palate: Full and rich flavours fill the palate with alluring red fruits, dried prunes, cocoa and spice. Ripe tannins and balanced acidity are brought together with well-integrated alcohol.

Finish: A lasting finish.

Port is a geographically protected indication, meaning that to be called port it must be made in a specific region of Portugal. Thus, this is not technically a port wine, however, South African has a long tradition of producing port-styled wines in exactly the same process as is done in Portugal.
