Traditional grape varieties (chardonnay and pinot noir) are harvested in the cool of the night. Only the free-run juice is used for this MCC: ± the first 500 litres per ton. Krone Borealis is bottle-fermented and then matures on the lees in the underground cellar
Krone Borealis MCC
Iridescent pale gold. Oyster shell and sea-breeze aromatics on entry lead to bright green orchard apples, white blossoms, lemon flesh and a treacle hit of salted caramel. The Borealis presents deft and athletic on the palate with a creamy, fine-textured mousse. Yellow apples, kumquat and naartjie evolve with a touch of lemon meringue framing an iodine core, the acidity is firm and cleansing, revealing white ginger root on the finish.
