Cape Hake with Mushroom Duxelle topped with Fresh Herbs & Parmesan Crust
It was with much excitement that Groote Post, the historic West Coast farm owned by the Pentz family, released the much-anticipated 2020 vintage of their Groote Post Seasalter 2020 – their flagship Sauvignon with a Semillon component and a touch of oak.
There is so much to love about the Groote Post Seasalter 2020!
It is a West Coast Story in a Bottle! We have the elegance and purity of fruit, vibrant acidity, oyster shell minerality and saline finish, which is so typical of Sauvignons from the unique maritime cool-climate Darling Hills terroir.
We got the charming name that captures the essence of the wine.
Do not forget the refreshing distinctive label that visually portrayed the West Coast soul of the wine.
Debbie McLaughlin, cordon bleu chef patron at Hilda’s Kitchen, the much-loved restaurant at Groote Post, has used her culinary creativity to devise a special seafood dish to perfectly complement the Groote Post Seasalter:
