Winter is that time of the year where our social lives go into unofficial hibernation and we tend to stay in, develop our home cooking skills and spend our evenings sipping delicious drinks in front of the fireplace, snuggled up under a blanket. Which is why we are giving away 2 mixed cases of De Krans port style wines. The perfect wines to cook with or pair with a delicious meal.
To enter the competition simply tell us in the comments below “Which De Krans port wine are you looking to try out the most?”

The mixed cases will each consist 6 bottles of wine (3 bottles each of the Ruby and Vintage ports) to keep you warm this winter.
The Cape Ruby, one of the traditional styles of port with the name of the port referring to its brilliant ruby colour, is a non-Vintage port-style wine, indicating a blend of different vintages together to produce a well-rounded wine. The wine is smooth and structured and has velvety tannins to compliment the ripe plum, blue and red berries with a touch of cinnamon spice and violets. Go ahead and add De Krans Premium Cape Ruby generously to your “potjie” or any meat dish in a slow cooker, while having a glass on its own. This will take your meat dish to that next level.
The De Krans Cape Vintage is a perfect introduction to enjoying port-style wines and pairs well with a baked dessert like chocolate fondant, a piece of dark chocolate, or a well matured cheese. This port-style wine has a deep purple red colour, indicative of its intense, full and rich palate of red fruits, dried prunes, cocoa and spice. The Cape Vintage can be keept for approximately 20 years in bottle when stored correctly. This port-style wine is an excellent, value for money and quality port-style wine.
