Tasting Notes
NOT AVAILABLE FOR TASTING AT CELLAR DOOR

The components of this unusual blend received similar treatment in the winery as Groote Post's single-variety releases, but for reasons of style were excluded from the final bottlings. The elegance of this wine - a combination of ripe fruit and well-judged seasoning in French oak barrels - make it a rare treat at the price.
