The Cape Vintage Reserve 2016 – De Krans flagship port-style wine – spent 20 months in a big oak vat and has a dark colour with a plum red rim. A big wine full of ripe dark fruit notes of plum, mulberry and black currents. Well-rounded, with smooth dark chocolate undertones and firm tannins, results in a wine that will mature well over 30 years. A port-style wine to savour on its own or enjoy with well matured cheeses. The De Krans Cape Vintage Reserve 2016 retails for approximately R375  per bottle.
