About The Harvest
The harvest was earlier this year. Summer rains resulted in partial rot settling in and so the ripe and healthy grape bunches had to be sorted by hand before picking.
In The Cellar
The juice was fermented in 300L French Oak barrels and aged on the lees for 10 months. 15% New oak and 85% older oak was used.
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.
