About The Harvest
Good rains in the lead up to 2019 harvest was a big improvement on the previous dry years. The summer was also cooler than previous years and will lead to more fruit driven wines.
 
In The Cellar
Our new cold room allowed us to ferment and age our chardonnay under temperature controlled fermentation and aging conditions. The juice was fermented in 300L French Oak barrels and aged on the lees for 8 months. 80% New oak and 20% older oak was used.
 
Additional Information
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.

    
750ml.

Made on the Cape West Coast, South Africa.
