Bubbles for Special occasions

Toast the weekend with a glass of Krone. There’s the Vintage Rosé Cuvée Brut 2017 – mostly Pinot Noir, with a touch of Chardonnay, it’s a paradox of rich, berry fruit and refreshing, natural finesse. This pretty, salmon-pink bubbly is lovely with an old-fashioned, creamy prawn and avocado cocktail with spiced lime wedges, or a charcuterie board with Parma ham and prosciutto. Around  R145 a bottle. Closer to the first famous sparkling wines of France a century ago is the Krone Night Nectar Demi-Sec Rosé 2017. Also a blend of 85 per cent Pinot Noir and 15 per cent Chardonnay, this subtle, salmon blush-hued bubbly is lovely with grilled prawns, sticky pork belly, or strawberry cream cake. Yum!  About R145 a bottle.
