Groote Post has always been best known for its Sauvignon Blanc, but in recent years its other wines, notably Chardonnay, Shiraz and Pinot Noir, have gained greater recognition, from wine competitions and its widespread client base alike. Although Groote Post wines have received a steady stream of accolades and awards since its maiden 1999 vintage, co-owner Nick Pentz and winemaker Lukas Wentzel believe that the best has yet to come. While acknowledging that winemaking and, particularly, grape growing are a perpetual work in progress, they are confident that they now have the building blocks in place for a more mature phase in its life cycle. This was amply illustrated during the long and challenging 2004 harvest that produced grapes with the desired physiological factors and phenolic ripeness, resulting in complex wines showing intense fruit flavours. The Sauvignon Blancs are now showing consistency with the sought-after fruit to acid balance.

The trend is that our harvests are getting earlier and earlier. The old vine chardonnay produced yet another outstanding crop.

The juice was fermented in 300L French oak barrels.

Aged on the lees for 10 months. 25% New oak and 75% older oak was used.

Food pairing

Serve with a matured cheddar and a spoon of spicy onion marmalade.
