Post House is a traditional family estate nestled on a ridge of the Helderberg mountains. The farm had originally operated as a post office, serving the local missionary community of Raithby, it was a logical step to associate the wine with its postal origin. The wines were thus named Post House. The wines are made in traditional winemaking methods, the philosophy is to interfere as little as possible in the creation of the wine making process.
Penny Black is the vineyard's flagship wine and the name refers to the first stamp that was ever printed as well as to the dark inky black colour of the wine. Stylish elegent wine with a smooth entry and firm but supple tannins. An initial nose of floral petals, also of fynbos (South African heath), blackcurrant, fruitcake, white pepper and spice. Rounded ripe fruit giving a long and lingering finish.
