Case of 12 Krone Borealis Vintage Cuvee Brut (375ml)
The scent of ice, cool and mineral on opening. Calling to mind the snowcapped peaks of the Saronsberg of winter 2020, the arc of mountains surrounding the vineyards of Twee Jonge Gezellen. The characteristic oyster shell of the Borealis is there, flinty and intense, alongside powdery white flowers, white peach and crisp green apples. The cooler growing conditions of this vintage resolves with a tight, energetic palate; the fruit is fresh and clean against a chalky texture; limpid peach and melon grow and evolve into glacé pineapple and a whip of lemon curd. Extended lees time (18 months) and a lower level of tirage deliver autolytic biscuity intensity and a fine, persistent bubble, to a long, radiant finish.
Our flagship Cap Classique evokes a sense of discovery in dining—in a pure and simple way; such as mussels steamed open with seawater; with its distinct line of salinity, the Borealis elevates the oceanic. Minerals and earth; salt-baked; creamy porcini risotto. Simmering comforts of braising chicken, texture and spice.
