The first observation made about Post House wine is often the colour. These are perhaps some of the darkest, deepest coloured wines to be found. This is a result of a combination of the terroir and vinification process.

The cellar only produces a small quantity of wine and assumes a hands-on and conscientious approach at each step. With creativity, the whole wine package is fine-tuned.

Interference is kept to a minimum during the wine making process. Therefore, the grapes are handled as gently as possible. The grapes are harvested into small fruit bins, where they are checked and sorted before being lightly crushed and destalked.
