Tasting Notes

Groote Post's The Inheritance Pinot Noir is a delightful representation of the varietal, offering a lovely light red hue and a bouquet of cherries and raspberries on the nose. The palate is elegantly soft, boasting the same red fruit elements that lead to a fruity and gratifying finish. This wine is approachable and well-balanced, making it a charming choice for those seeking a classic and fruity expression of Pinot Noir. Enjoy this wine now or allow it to develop further complexity with a few years of aging.

In The Cellar

Crafted with great care, we meticulously select the finest grapes from our vineyards and sorting table prior to destemming. The berries remain intact as they undergo fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Before inoculation with yeast, they undergo a cold soak for five days. Gentle pump overs occur three times daily during fermentation, and just before completion, the juice is delicately separated from the skins, ensuring a wine of exceptional purity and elegance.

Additional Information

After a seven-year hiatus, we could not resist exploring the immense potential of our new Pinot Noir block. The result is a remarkable wine that surpassed all expectations. The moment we tasted the fruits of our labour, we knew we had something extraordinary on our hands. This special cuvée beautifully captures the essence of Groote Post, offering a harmonious blend of flavours and aromas that make it truly exceptional.
