It’s been a great year for De Krans Wines on the competition front, with the latest accolade being awarded to their Cape Vintage Reserve 2012 for the Best In Museum Class category, at this year’s Trophy Wine Show. Sponsored by Investec, the awards were announced on 6 July.
Not only was the Cape Vintage Reserve 2012 the winner in its category, but it also received an impressive score of 97 out of a possible 100 points. In addition, the Cape Vintage Reserve 2018 was awarded 93 points, with the De Krans Tritonia Verdelho 2021 receiving 89, 88 for Touriga Nacional 2020 and 87 for the Tawny Limited Release.
This year, 673 wines were entered into the competition. Of this number, only 29 were awarded gold medals and of the gold medalists 20 won trophies. In addition, 133 silver and 346 bronze medals were awarded.
With its dark black colour and plum red rim the De Krans Cape Vintage Reserve 2012 is a big wine full of ripe dark fruit notes, plums, mulberry and black currants. Well-rounded with smooth dark chocolate undertones and firm tannins results in a wine that would mature well over 30 years. Stock up on this 2012 award-winning port-style wine, which is only available directly off the farm at R400 per bottle.
