Groote Post Old Man’s Blend 2010
A stunning balance of zest and fruit.
Generally a crowd-pleasing blend from our friends on the West Coast, this year’s Old Man’s Blend (white, I have yet to sample the red) is a stunning balance of zest and fruit. I paired a bottle with sushi and the salmon and soy formed a lovely compliment.
The blend is 50% sauvignon blanc, 30% chenin blanc and 20% Semillon. Winemaker, Lukas Wentzel, proudly states that “this wine is sure to become a-terrific-value-for-money-crowd-pleaser” – and at a retail price of around R44, this is a bargain which cannot be beaten!
