Platter Review: 4*

Gossamer pink. Aromatics of frais de bois, the straw- berry edged in papaya pip spice. Ethereal notes of rosewater skate along denser tones of crushed or- ange peel. Pinot noir led, the terroir is vividly sketched on the palate, sun-baked stones, the perfect ripeness of gentle summer, strawberries, white peach, tangy cranberry freshness. The acids are lemony and soft, light and buoyant. A deeper tug into fresh cream, a layered mouth-coating mousse, finishing with linger- ing notes of toasted hazelnuts.

Food Pairing  
Krone Cuvée Brut Rosé delights in food that favours honest expression; from a simple picnic with slivers of charcuterie, crusty sourdough bread, ripe, melty Camembert. A tug-of-war between density and weightlessness, the structure lends itself to the re- fined too; salmon with crispy skin crackling and wild black rice to rolled porchetta, and duck with cherries.

Grape 
The classic varieties of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are hand-picked in the cool of the night. Krone Rosé is bottle- fermented and prior to disgorging, the bottles are packed in wooden pupitres (turning racks) and the rémuage (turning of bottles) is done entirely by hand. Truly a hand-crafted wine which requires patience.
