It’s Father’s Day on Sunday 16th June 2019, the perfect day for Dad to enjoy The Old Man’s Blend wines from Groote Post: Serious Wines at Seriously Good Prices!
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 enormous popularity of The Old Man’s Blend Red established a Groote Post tradition, with The Old Man’s Blend White subsequently added to the range.

This wine is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and Semillon. The varietals are vinified separately, then blended in different ratios until the blend meets The Old Man’s approval. Displaying gorgeous tropical fruit notes, a fresh lively acidity livens the palate and lovely guava and green apple flavours linger on the finish.

This wine is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Cabernet Franc. During the winemaking and wood maturation, the cultivars are kept apart, and The Old Man takes part in rigorous tasting sessions to decide on the final blend. This is a down-to-earth, ripe-fruit-driven blend. Cherry, mulberry and cedar wood are prominent on the nose with soft tannins on the palate giving a smooth finish.
