Groote Post, Seasalter 750ml 2020South Africa, Darling
'90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Semillon. 19% of the final blend fermented and matured for four months in 300-litre barrels. The nose is very expressive with top notes of cut grass and fresh herbs before citrus and peach while the palate is clean and fresh – good fruit concentration before a salty finish.' – Winemag Prescient Sauvignon Blanc Report 2020, Top 10
'Groote Post’s 2020 Seasalter Sauvignon Blanc - partially wooded with a Semillon component - is a beautifully composed complex wine with the Sauvignon’s zesty acidity and vibrancy perfectly balanced by the richer notes and fuller mouth feel added by the Semillon component. The Seasalter is wonderfully expressive on the nose exuding fragrant bell pepper nuanced by blackcurrant and granny smith apple with subtle aromas of kelp and passionfruit. This complex and integrated nose follows through onto the palate with captivating flavours of grapefruit and zesty lime acidity with hints of fynbos, sea-breeze and a touch of oak. Rich layered and long, this subtly powerful blend is intense but not weighty: an elegant well-balanced wine showing typical Darling minerality, vibrant acidity and some leesy complexity before a saline finish.' – Winemaker
About Groote Post:
The historic Groote Post farm, located on the Darling Hills on the Cape West Coast, dates back to 1808 and was once home to the Dutch East India Company. The Pentz family bought the farm in 1972 which now totals 3,000 hectares. 3rd and 4th generation dairy farmers, Peter and Nick Pentz, run Groote Post and started planted vines in 1993, with their maiden release in 1999. They have 112 hectares of vines planted with noble cultivars which experience a cool-climate terroir.
