87% Touriga Nacional, 13% Tinta Barocca

Tasting notes:
'Phenomenally consistent, successful & long-lived 'port'. 2014 60% from touriga, as was 13, with tintas barocca & roriz, souzáo. 14 wonderfully rich & well-rounded mouthful of dusty cherries, ripe plums, dark choc & spice, the controlled fire of 19% alcohol seamlessly absorbed.' – Platter's Wine Guide 2017, 4.5*

About De Krans:
De Krans Wine Cellar is situated along the upper reaches of the picturesque Gamka River Valley in Calitzdorp in the Klein Karoo. The rich and long history of the farm dates to 1890, when it was bought by the Nel family. The current cellar was built in 1964 by Chris Nel and his brother Danie. The first Portuguese grape variety in Calitzdorp was planted in 1973 at De Krans by a twist of fate. Chris Nel, father of Boets & Stroebel Nel, intended to plant Shiraz, which turned out to be Tinta Barocca, when the newly planted vineyard started bearing grapes in 1976! Now Calitzdorp is known as South Africa’s Port Capital with these varietals leading the way.
