⅓ Cup of Greek Yoghurt

The Groote Post Brut is a blend of traditional Champagne varietals, 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir, harnessing structure and acidity from the Chardonnay and fruity components from the Pinot Noir. Stylishly packaged, the Groote Post Brut is an elegant refreshing Cap Classique displaying a vibrant pale gold colour, a fine creamy mousse, zesty notes of green apple and white pear with hints of brioche, a well-rounded velvety yet lively mouthfeel and a crisp lingering finish. Served well chilled, it is perfect on its own and also delicious with West Coast oysters.

The Groote Post Brut is available from the Groote Post cellar door, online at https://groote-post-wines.myshopify.com and nationally at select wine retailers. Approximate retail price: R163
