More info

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.

TASTING NOTE
This wine is typical Darling, with minerality in abundance. Fresh cut grass and green aromas are prominent on the nose, while citrus and quince abound on the palate. Well integrated acidity and abundant flavours give the wine great length.

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.

IN THE CELLAR
The wine was fermented for 2 weeks in stainless steel tanks. It spent 3 months on the lees before filtering and bottling.
