Legend records that Bacchus, God of Wine in Greek mythology, fell in love with Ariadne, daughter of the King of Crete. In order to uplift her spirits and prove his love to her, he threw her golden crown, a circlet of gems, into the heavens where it remained to shine forever as the dainty constellation of stars called CORONA BOREALIS. Corona means crown, as does Krone – hence KRONE BOREALIS a little poetic licence used to describe this Méthode Cap Classique being full of ‘stars.A tribute to Pinot Noir, the Krone Rosé Cuvée Brut is a paradox of rich, berry fruit and refreshing, natural elegance. Each successful Krone vintage is an achievement; a mark of a moment, a time to be celebrated. Salmon-pink. Elegant, floral bouquet with delicate pomegranate and cut red apple. Fine, creamy mousse with a punch of juicy, rich berries. Smooth, bone dry finish enhanced by lingering berry notes.
Charred squid with tamarind and pineapple salsa, creamy prawn and avo cocktail with spiced lime wedges, salmon with crispy skin crackling and wild rice, sesame-encrusted seared tuna, charcuterie board featuring parma ham, prosciutto and saucisson sec
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.
