The Groote Post estate in the Darling Hills up the West Coast, 6km from the icy Atlantic, is blessed with grapes that ripen at high acidity levels, so vital to the production of top Cap Classiques. The Groote Post Brut Rosé is an elegant non-vintage blend of classic Champagne varietals, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, harnessing structure and acidity from the Chardonnay and fruity components from the Pinot Noir. The grapes are whole bunch pressed, an important process when creating fine sparkling wines. The juice spends three months on the lees after the first fermentation. The wine then undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle and matures for 15 months on the lees, adding a creaminess and beautiful texture to the wine. Thereafter the disgorging and dosage take place.
The Groote Post Brut Rosé Cap Classique is available from the Groote Post cellar door, or click HERE to shop online and select fine wine merchants around the country.
