A big, full-bodied wine with a warm, spicy nose of white pepper and cloves. Lots of depth and complexity through careful oak integration with a hint of vanilla imparted by 10% American oak.

The grapes are from an old bush vine vineyard, which yielded a mere four tons per hectare of tiny berries. Judging that the fruit quality warranted it, we went for 100% new oak, and did malolactic fermentation in the barrel to get optimal integration.

The bounty of our merlot vineyards is almost endless. In this wine the intensely concentrated plum and chocolate flavours gives an almost syrupy consistency on the palate.

Groote Post The Old Man's Blend Red 2005 -  SOLD OUT
NOT AVAILABLE FOR TASTING AT CELLAR DOOR

How this wine has evolved. We have listened closely to our market who have indicated their desire for an accessible, smooth and soft wine. A vibrant ruby red colour with prominent red berry (noticeably raspberry) flavours. A hint of white pepper helps to give the wine a smoky, spicy character that works well against the juicy fruit delivery of Cabernet Franc. The wine is named after Peter Pentz, owner of Groote Post, who is affectionately referred to by his children as "The Old Man".
