With spring becoming a thing of the past and summer fast approaching, make the most of the superb South African weather with a chilled glass of De Krans Moscato 2012.
Moscato tends to be a popular white wine among new wine lovers and enjoys a significant following with seasoned wine enthusiasts who enjoy a lighter-styled wine with brunch, dessert, or on its own as an accomplished aperitif. Winemaker Boets Nel describes the De Krans Moscato 2012 as a full-flavoured natural sweet perlé wine made to be enjoyed throughout the year. This light-bodied wine displays tones of honey and exotic spice with a fresh, mouth-watering aftertaste.
Intended to be consumed young, while it’s fresh and vibrant, this wine is best enjoyed chilled and is the perfect partner to apple desserts, fresh berries, summer salads, meringue pies and hazelnut based desserts. Although dessert is Moscato’s forte, it works beautifully with cheese courses, charcuterie or antipasto dishes. Its versatility, with a definitive balance of sweet and acidity, and the lower alcohol also make Moscato an ideal aperitif candidate, though it has certainly earned its stripes as the wine world’s most fashionable brunch-time guest as well.
Be sure not to miss out on this summer’s thirst quencher, which retails for approximately R44 per bottle. Available at many retail outlets nationwide, or order directly from De Krans Wine Cellar.
