Summer in a glass…

High up above the picturesque Gamka River Valley near Calitzdorp, you’ll find the De Krans Wine Cellar … a farm with history dating way back to 1890. With the first grapes being planted mainly for the production of raisins and some sweet wine, De Krans quickly became well-known for quality ports and Muscat sweet wines, as well as dry table wines. The vineyards lie between the peaks of the impressive Outeniqua Mountains, planted in rocky granite soils on four wire Perold trellis more than 600m above sea level. And the wines are among some of our favourites.
This month we’re drinking the wonderful Garden Route Sauvignon Blanc 2019. This wine, with its clear, crisp translucent colour, has a lovely bouquet of beautiful fresh green pepper, cut grass and fynbos, with a little passion fruit and guava fruit salad. You’ll taste fresh tropical fruits and cut grass and a hint of green pepper. It’s really excellent with something like fresh cob or stumpnose, served with a lime dressing, but also works well with any pâté or salads … so perfect for these long warm summer days. R75 from dekrans.co.za.
