2018 Groote Post The Old Man's Blend RED
A down to earth, ripe fruit driven blended red wine. Cherry, mulberry and cedar wood are prominent on the nose with soft sweet tannins on the palate giving a smooth finish.
IN THE VINEYARD
This is a fantastic vintage. Optimal ripeness was obtained in all four cultivars.
IN THE CELLAR
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.
