Enjoy With A Glass Of Groote Post Seasalter 2021
Seasalter is fast becoming Groote Post’s celebrated wine, with its West Coast saltiness and minerality from the nearby Atlantic. #Seasalter2021 is wonderfully expressive on the nose exuding fragrant guava and gooseberry nuanced by blackcurrant and citrus notes with subtle aromas of kelp and passionfruit. This complex and integrated nose follows through onto the palate with captivating yellow fruit and a 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.
