De Krans Pink Port NV 375ml

De Krans Pink Port is made from traditional port varieties Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barocca and Souzão. The lovely blush colour was acquired by allowing only a few hours skin contact. Lovely vibrant blush colour, rich ripe flavours of fresh red berries and a long, lingering aftertaste.

This new style of port is aimed at all port lovers that will enjoy this wonderful freshness and flavour spectrum all year round.Enjoy well-chilled, or on crushed ice in summer as an aperitif with nuts and olives. In the cooler months of the year, this port can also be served at room temperature with olives, nuts or any pâté of your choice.

in the vineyard : De Krans is one of the leading port producers in South Africa, continuously producing excellent quality port styles such as White, Ruby, Tawny, Vintage and Vintage Reserve Ports. De Krans has produced three 5-star ports consecutively, according to the Platter Wine Guide, for its 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006 Vintage Reserve Ports.
In order to build on this tradition of excellence, a decision was made to create a port suited to South African conditions and relative warm climate. This led to the idea to follow the growing current popularity of rosé wines and translate this into something that a port lover could enjoy all year round. It was decided to create something similar to a White Port with more fruit flavour, depth and length. Finally, late 2007, winemaking brothers Boets & Stroebel Nel decided to make their idea a reality by creating a fortified rosé from traditional varieties during the 2008 harvest. The wine was made early February 2008 and the result exceeded all their expectations. Naming this new baby was a real challenge, until they discovered that Marks & Spencer in the UK had just launched a new port made by Croft, one of the original port houses in the Douro Valley of Portugal, called Croft Pink. Voila! The new wine got the name De Krans Pink Port.
