About the wine
Post House Cellars derives its name from the small Post Office which used to serve the local missionary community of Raithby and which is now the winery office and residence. It was consequently a logical step to associate the wine with its postal origin The farm was bought by the Gebers family in 1981 in the picturesque area between the towns of Somerset West and Stellenbosch, and is situated at the foothills of the Helderberg Mountain.
Stylish elegant wine with a smooth entry.
Dark inky black colour. Initial nose of floral petals, also of fynbos (South African heath),
blackcurrant, fruitcake, white pepper and spice. An elegant wine with firm but supple tannins.
Rounded ripe fruit giving a long and lingering finish.

The grapes were fermented separately, using natural yeasts from the vineyard, in open stainless steel tanks up to a maximum of 30°C. The skins were pushed down 4-8 times during peak fermentation. Malolactic fermentation took place in the barrel where the wine had minimal handling. Use was made of traditional gravity flow and no mechanical pumps were used in the wine making process. The wines were racked 4 times over a 20-month period. There was no filtration and the sulphur levels were kept to a minimum.
Wood ageing: 35% new oak, mainly French and European. 100% oaked in French and European oak. 24 months in 225 liter barrels.
