About this wine

The 2018 Groote Post Kapokberg Chardonnay displays grapefruit and citrus flavours in abundance on both the nose and palate.  This vintage has fresh acidity, beautiful minerality with a vibrant, racy and zesty structure.  Kapokberg translated as “snowy mountain” – in days gone by, 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 their vineyard selection wines.

From crisp, flinty Chablis styles to full-bodied, oaky, rich Napa Valley Chardonnay it is a variety which has the ability to morph according to the climate or winemaking philosophy. It also has the capacity to produce amongst the greatest white wines in the world. Some praise indeed for this chameleon variety, the likes of which may only truly be matched by Riesling or Chenin Blanc."
