About this wine

The Groote Post Salt Of The Earth is a blend of 67% Shiraz and 33% Cinsault.  “Salt of the Earth” is representative of the best and noblest grapes sourced from pockets of excellence throughout the Darling wine district.  This wine has an abundance of dark cherry, spicy white pepper and violet notes on the nose whilst Cinsault flavours of cherries and strawberries are prominent on the palate. The wine is very well structured with soft tannins and has great length. This new and limited release from Groote Post just proves, once again, their dedication to producing only top quality wines.
