Retailer of quality wine and spirits around the world
2012 Touriga Naçional, De Krans Wine
Out of Stock


HK$168.00



Boets and Stroebel Nel of De Krans Wine Cellar in Calitzdorp have released the first single-variety Touriga Naçional dry red wine in South Africa in 2000.  This 2012 vintage is the 12th wine from this variety from De Krans.

Touriga Naçional as grape variety is already well-known as one of the most important building blocks in the great port wine of the world.  After a visit to the Douro Valley of Portugal and tasting wines made from Touriga Naçional, the Nel brothers were convinced that a top quality red wine could be produced from this variety at De Krans.

This Touriga Naçional 2012 was made from fully ripe grapes sourced from the very low yield vineyards with 15-year old vines planted on poor clay soil.  After malolactic fermentation, the wine was wooded for 6 months prior to bottling.

Producer
De Krans Wine Cellar, South Africa

Appellation
Calitzdorp

Cellarmaster Notes
This wine has a vibrant deep plum colour, with dense aromas of chocolate, spice, pepper, a touch of vanilla and prunes.  It has a fleshy, chewy monthful of flavours.  The firm tannin structure, together with the concentrated fruit, ensures excellent maturation potential.  This wine is the flagship dry red wine from De Krans.

Rating & Awards
This wine was rated 4-star by the world famous John Platters South African Wine Guide 2013 and received a Gold Madel at Michelangelo Wine Awards 2012.
