Wine for your old man

So he tells dad jokes. Just laugh. And pour him another glass of Groote Post’s The Old Man’s Blend. Developed almost 20 years ago at the behest of Groote Post’s Old Man, Peter Pentz, who wanted a blend of red wine to enjoy as his winter evening tipple, The Old Man’s Blend Red 2019 is a blend of 50 per cent Merlot and 25 per cent each Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The wine maker says it’s a fantastic vintage … a down-to-earth, ripe-fruit-driven blend. If dad’s more of a white wine man, choose The Old Man’s Blend White 2019, a blend of 50 per cent each Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc, with refreshing citrus flavours. Both are said to be seriously good wines, at seriously good prices, and we agree. You’ll find them at local wine stores as well as at the Groote Post cellar door (groote-post-wines.myshopify.com – delivery after lockdown) from R86 for the white, R91 for the red. Details: grootepost.co.za
