Cabernet Sauvignon, Single Vineyard, Doolhof 2020


ABV 14.0%

Tasting Notes
This South African Cabernet Sauvignon is made of grapes from a single vineyard with well drained sandy soil for healthy ripening. The grapes are treated carefully with cold soaking for light extraction of fresh fruit character and extended skin contact for enhanced texture and richness. It has a garnet and brick red colour, with bright aromas of blackberry and black cherry along with savoury notes of oak and some spice from 12 months ageing in French oak. Medium in body with fine, smooth tannins and a soft juicy finish.

Serve with lamb stew, beef fillet with a wild mushroom sauce. Pairs extremely well with venison, vegetarian cuisine, pizza and pasta.

Nestled in the Cape Mountain ranges with a unique variety of terroir and microclimates giving Doolhof the ability to grow a range of varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinotage and Shiraz. A combination of Malmesbury shale, homogenic Glenrosa and Clovelly soils ensure that the roots are able to descend to four metres or beyond. Each variety is planted on soil it is best suited to, allowing successful and optimum ripeness of grapes. The white varietals are planted on the eastern slopes of the Groenberg, which allow the grapes cooler days and less direct sunlight.
