Groote Post

Groote Post is a historic 18th century farm on the Cape's West Coast where winemaking traditions have been revived by the Pentz family. Unique aspects and cool climatic conditions of the Darling Hills yield superlative fruit. Groote Post wines are produced to reflect the uniqueness of their vineyards. The winery is situated in a lovely green valley threaded by the Klawer River, a stream really, with Kikuyu lawns bordering on the werf, all watched over by the beautifully restored Cape Dutch Klawer Valley homestead and the imposing slave bell (depicted on the Groote Post wine labels). As proud members of the Biodiversity Wine Initiative, owners Peter and Nick Pentz have also made a commitment to preserving thousands of hectares of endangered fynbos (shrubland) and to minimise the further loss of threatened natural habitat.

Tasting Notes

Cherry flavours greet you on the palate accompanied by dried-beef and savoury flavours, rounded off with the taste of fresh herbs. A subtle hint of forest floor typical of the grape variety is evident on the finish. A full, juicy wine that is richer and more intense than most Pinot Noirs.

Food Matches

Delicious with wild boar sausages and mash with onion gravy and buttered cabbage.
