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 Groote Post’s #Seasalter2021.

*Funky Ouma Sea Salt is rich in minerals, natural and unrefined, and harvested by hand the traditional way. The slightly granular salt is extracted from a unique aquifer on the Cape West Coast, where the seawater is filtered through sand and mussel banks and thus provides additional calcium. The salt crystals, created by the sun and wind, are packed straight from the pans with their minerals intact. It is a table salt! Use every day according to your needs and taste buds.

Enjoy With A Glass Of Groote Post SeaSalter 2021
Seasalter is fast becoming Groote Post’s celebrated wine, with its West Coast saltiness and minerality from the nearby Atlantic.
Seasalter 2021 is wonderfully expressive on the nose exuding fragrant guava and gooseberry nuanced by blackcurrant and citrus notes with subtle aromas of kelp and passionfruit. This complex and integrated nose follows through onto the palate with captivating yellow fruit and a zesty lime acidity with hints of fynbos, sea-breeze and a touch of oak. Rich layered and long, this subtly powerful blend is intense but not weighty: an elegant well-balanced wine showing typical Darling minerality, vibrant acidity and some leesy complexity before a saline finish.
Seasalter 2021 is available from the Groote Post cellar door, online at https://groote-post-wines.myshopify.com/collections/all and at select fine wine merchants around the country.
