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.
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 wonderful smooth finish.
Enjoy with fillet steak cooked in a wild mushroom sauce.
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.
