Groote Post's Old Man's Sparkle Brut Rose adding sparkle to summer
21 September 2012 by Groote Post
The Old Man of Groote Post, Peter Pentz, was proud to release the 5th edition of The Old Man’s Sparkle Brut Rosé with a new classic blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay, and his greatest wish is that his bubbly will add a refreshing sparkle to your life this summer.
is an elegant salmon-hued Cap Classique with a fine creamy mousse, gorgeous notes of crushed strawberries and raspberries and a silky smoothness on the palate. The Old Man’s Sparkle was crafted according to the age-old tradition of a second fermentation in the bottle, which lends a classic yeast and biscuit flavour that lingers on the palate. It was hand-riddled in wooden riddling racks, before disgorging and dosage. Two years in the bottle before release adds complexity and structure to the wine. The Groote Post Old Man’s Sparkle Brut Rosé retails for around R97.

The Old Man’s Sparkle Brut Rosé is perfect for picnic, patio and poolside sipping, an ideal accompaniment to fresh oysters, smoked salmon and sushi and absolutely fabulous with strawberries and cream.
The Old Man’s Blend Range came into being in 2001 at the behest of Groote Post’s ‘Old Man’, Peter Pentz, who asked the family to blend him a red wine to enjoy as his winter evening tipple. The blend’s enormous popularity established a Groote Post tradition, with a similar red blend bottled annually under The Old Man’s Blend label. The Old Man’s Blend White and The Old Man’s Sparkle were subsequently added to the range.
Groote Post’s The Old Man’s Blend range comprises seriously good wines at seriously good prices. The Old Man’s Blend range is available nationally at leading wine retailers and select restaurants.
In addition to an excellent range of Groote Post and The Old Man’s Blend wines, this beautiful historic farm offers much in which to indulge, including nature walks, farm drives through the vineyards and their 2000-hectare game camp, magnificent spring flowers and the award-winning restaurant, Hilda’s Kitchen.
