Groote Post The Old Man's Blend Red 2002

NOT AVAILABLE FOR TASTING AT CELLAR DOOR

The components of this unusual blend received exactly the same treatment in the winery as our single-variety releases, but for reasons of style were excluded from the final bottlings. Its juicy fruit, seasoned with maturation in new and second-fill barrels, make an irresistible package.
