Groote Post The Old Man's Blend Red 2008

A down to earth, easy drinking red which is soft and smooth. Merlot based, the nose has a faint touch of white pepper and spice with abundant berry and rich plum flavours on the palate. A value for money wine that's perfect to share and everyone has a favourite Old Man in their life!
