Pale straw yellow in colour with green hues. The bouquet shows aromas of stone fruit and jasmine fragrancese. It has a lingering acidity that is well balanced by the natural residual sugar on the palate. The finish is fine and elegant, giving notes of grapefruit & pineapple with ginger spice.

Groote Post is an 18th century farm on the West Coast where winemaking traditions have been revived by the Pentz family. The Groote Post homestead was built in 1808 and, for a while, was Lord Charles Somerset's only genuine "shooting box" and later was the home of well-known author, Hildagonda Duckitt. The name is derived from its original status as the largest guarding post in the area. The Pentzs bought Groote Post in 1972, later adding the adjoining the historic Klawer Valley for the purpose of its dairy. Unique aspects and cool climatic conditions of the Darling Hills yield superlative fruit. The award winning wines are produced to reflect the uniqueness of the vineyards. The winery is watched over by the beautifully restored Cape Dutch Klawer Valley homestead and the imposing slave bell (depicted on the Groote Post wine labels). On the site itself the old historic building was preserved through the centuries and still gives today a good impression of life in the Cape in the 1800s.
