The name Missing Virgin refers to a printing error on a Virgin Island stamp. The virgin figure was omitted from the stamp, hence the nick name, “Missing Virgin”.
A red blend of Pinotage and Petit Verdot grapes resulting in a wine that has an intensely dark blueish colour. The bouquet has a hint of cinnamon, blueberries, fruitcake and wild heath. A full-bodied rich wine with supple soft tannins but which has a lively long finish.
The Post House Cellars get’s 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. The farm, which is in the picturesque area between the towns of Somerset West and Stellenbosch, was bought by the Gebers family in 1981 and systematically planted with vines, the fruit from which was sold to the local co-operative. It was only in 1996 that a couple of experimental barrels of their own wine were made by Nick Gebers, and were an instant hit with the critics; since when the winery has been going from strength to strength, producing rich, characterful wines known for both power and finesse.
