Seasalter Sauvignon Blanc, Semilion 2021, Groote Post

£15.85 per bottle

About this wine

Groote Post Seasalter is wonderfully expressive on the nose and palate with captivating notes of blackcurrant, granadilla and citrus flavours is well supported by subtle oak nuances. The palate has an abundance of fruit and well-balanced acidity gives beautiful length to this wine.  An elegant well-balanced wine showing typical Darling minerality, vibrant acidity and some leesy complexity before a saline finish.

The Seasalter is a blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Semillon with 30% of the Sauvignon Blanc was fermented and aged for 8 months in a 300 litre French Oak barrels. The remaining components were fermented in stainless steel tanks and left on the fine lees.

Alcohol: 14.18% ABV

The variety has classic zingy freshness, citrus notes and in the case of Marlborough in particular, gooseberry aromatics and flavours. Very pure, it can often be opulent yet also the opposite, with taut mineral notes. A classic, modern varietal with huge popularity, usually unoaked, there are an increasing number of food-focused expressions with a little barrel maturation adding texture and lift."
