Krone Borealis Vintage Cuvée Brut

LCBO#: 556654
Price: $18.95
Made in: Tulbagh, South Africa
By: Twee Jonge Gezellen
Year: 2016

This South African bubbly gives out freshly crushed apple aromas and hints of honey. After breathing, raisin notes come out with hints of brown sugar and yeast. The dried raisins really show in the taste, over the apple notes. The yeast is well-hidden, and the mouthfeel a little dry, a slight wet. Does not linger too, too long. Nothing offensive, but if you are not into the raisin butter tarts, you might not like this one. If you are into something different, this is for you.

Krone Vintage Rosé Cuvée Brut

Price: $22.95
Made in: Tulbagh, South Africa
By: House of Krone

This South African bubbly Rosé has a creamy head. You can smell the strawberries and when you approach it, the yeast. Eventually, hints of cherry come out. The sourness in the taste helps this. Berries and yeast balance everything. Overall, nothing offensive but a little mild and a little too sour, over the berry flavours. If you like the sourness, you will love this one.
