Tasting Notes
Appealing golden straw colour with a nose of toasted farm bread with lashings of butter and zesty lime marmalade. This is a well balanced and elegant chardonnay. The wood is well integrated and balanced with upfront citrus flavours on the mid-palate.

In The Cellar

Additional Information
Kapokberg translated as “snowy mountain”. In days gone by, this hill, covered in white Spring flowers, resembled a snow capped mountain. At 459m above sea level, it is the highest hill at Groote Post and bears the name of our vineyard selection wines.
