This wine is typical Darling, with minerality in abundance. Green guava and kiwi aromas are prominent on the nose, while granadilla and passion fruit abound on the palate. Well integrated acidity and abundant flavours give the wine great length.

ageing : The wines’ balanced acidity will allow ageing for a good few years.

Kapokberg translated as “snowy mountain”. In days gone, 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 our vineyard selection wines.

Soil: Hutton & Oakleaf
Irrigation: Supplementary
Trellising: 7 wire extended movable Perold
Elevation: 280m

about the harvest: This was the earliest harvest I have experienced. The climatic conditions were very much in favour of a good Sauvignon Blanc year. Cooler conditions during the earlier stages of grape ripening, and the formation of smaller berries, led to more concentrated juice.

Yield: 8t/ha

in the cellar : The juice was fermented for 2 weeks in stainless steel tanks. It spent 3 months on the lees before filtering and bottling.
