Groote Post Pinch of Salt Chardonnay 2023

By , 25 October 2023

Darling property Groote Post has just launched Pinch of Salt Chardonnay 2023 (price: R220 a bottle). A replanting process featuring superior clones was started nine years ago and grapes come from these vineyards, winemaking involving 50% fermentation in stainless steel tank, 30% in oak barrels and 20% in clay amphorae before maturation lasting six months.

Aromatics are markedly primary at this stage with notes of blossom and lemon while there’s nice weight to the palate – pure, clean fruit matched by zippy acidity before a dry finish. This should only gain in complexity with a year or two in bottle. Alc: 13%.

CE’s rating: 89/100.
