De Krans Wine Cellar is situated along the upper reaches of the picturesque Gamka River Valley near Calitzdorp. The history of the farm dates back to 1890, when it was bought by the Nel family. Since 1985, most of the classic Portuguese Port and wine varieties have been planted. The present owners and cellar master are brothers Boets (who qualified as a Cape Wine Mater in 1997) and Stroebel Nel – the viticulturist.
Blend: 50% Tinta Barocca, 50% Touriga Nacional
This fortified wine is dark and rich in colour, with pleasant aromas of freshly ground coffee and layers of dark fruit. It has a firm structure and a lingering, aromatic aftertaste.
