Doolhof Wine Estate Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon () Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2021 and older


From our premium vineyard. East-West row direction, with well drained sandy soil. Grapes were picked by hand and whole bunch sorting done at the cellar. This added to the quality of the final product. Cold soaking was done for three days, extracting colour and aromas early on in the process. A slow fermentation, as well as extended time on the skins further enhanced wine quality. The wine was matured in 300 l french oak barrels of which 40% was new for 12 months after which it was stable and bottled in May 2019.

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