2021 House of Krone 'Krone Borealis' Cuvee Brut, Tulbagh, South Africa (750ml)
A vintage characterised by snow and sun. The cool 2021 growing season began with a cooler than average winter. Snow-capped mountains encircling the vineyards radiated white cold. Flint, brine, oyster shell; orchard apples, a rush of white blossoms, heady with spice. On the palate bubbles like silk, featherweight and buoyant, languidly wrap around winter melon, white peach, fresh pineapple. Wet crystal acidity, limpid and mineral, unwinds along seams of coiled light. Extended lees time (18 months) and a lower level of tirage layers on autolytic biscuity intensity, the satiny mousse ribboning to mineral austerity.
