Tasting Notes

Ripe, red fruit upfront on the nose with early morning farmyard blossoms. The palate is voluptuous and beautiful cherry notes with silky oak tannins support the structure on the finish.

About The Harvest

It’s exciting times with our Pinot Noir with new sites and different clones coming into production. The 2015 crop was one of our largest, but even with this increased yield the fruit developed very well with the berries achieving even phenolic ripeness.
Yield: 6 t/ha

In The Cellar

The wine was fermented in open barrels and also in stainless steel tanks. The wine spent 15 months in 500L French Oak barrels. 15% new oak, the rest in older barrels

Additional Information
Kapokberg translated as “snowy mountain”. In days gone, 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.
