2017 Gold Wine Awards - Gold

A down to earth, ripe fruit driven blended red wine. Cherry, mulberry and cedar wood are prominent on the nose with soft tannins on the palate giving a smooth finish. During
winemaking the cultivars were kept apart and aged in third fill 300L French Oak barrels and in stainless steel tanks with staves. At 10 months the different components are blended after rigorous tasting sessions with our Old Man, Peter Pentz. 
The Groote Post Vineyards is at the top of the list when it comes to the finest South Africa wine estates. This historic 18th century wine farm is picturesque and overlooks the icy Atlantic Ocean.
