De Krans Basket Press Cabernet Sauvignon 2018: The ideal braai wine!


Nothing beats finding that perfect Cabernet Sauvignon, a wine that is both structured and accessible enough to drink on its own, and that pairs perfectly with that impromptu weekday or weekend pizza, pasta dish, or a good old braai. The De Krans Basket Press Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 has a typical character of cassis, ripe berries with fresh prunes and cedar spice on the nose. What makes this Cabernet Sauvignon so unique is the use of an old basket press, which enables a softer pressing action, that results in a softer tannin structure and a fruit-driven character of plums, mulberries and dark cherries.

The De Krans Basket Press Cabernet Sauvignon completes the De Krans Classic Varietal Range, a wine collection that focuses on unique, boutique style of winemaking that embraces well-known and loved cultivars and position them within an affordable price range. The Classic Varietal Range also includes the Free-Run Chenin Blanc, Wild Ferment Chardonnay and Pinotage Rosé.

De Krans Wines is situated in Calitzdorp in the Klein Karoo region on the scenic Route 62 and nestled between Ladismith and Oudtshoorn. For many, De Krans is still synonymous with their quality port-style wines, which they are traditionally known for. However, over the years they have successfully expanded their repertoire and now also produce unique and award-winning dry, red wines made of Portuguese grape varieties.

This includes the Touriga Nacional and Tritonia Red (Calitzdorp blend). They are also pioneers of the popular Premium Moscato Perlé range, which includes their recently released Alcohol-Free Muscat Nectar.

The De Krans Basket Press Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 retails for approximately R76 per bottle in select retail outlets nationwide.
