Doolhof - Signature Single Vineyard, Chardonnay 2019

An unoaked refreshing crowd pleaser perfect for alfresco dining. Pale straw in colour with slight green tinge. The nose is distinct and fresh wish apple, citrus, grapefruit and floral hints. The wine is crisp, with a great fruit and acid balance, persistent and dry to finish. From the coolest site on the property, harvesting was done early in the morning to get the cool grapes to the cellar quickly. Bunches were whole bunch pressed and the juice settled and fermented with two different yeasts, each adding a different attribute to the final wine. After fermentation, the wine spent 2 months on the yeast lees before bottling.

Food Pairing: shellfish, mussels in a white wine fennel sauce, duck and also great with vegetarian cuisine, cheese and nuts.

Doolhof

The valley in which Doolhof lies is blessed with unique terroirs. The Estate lies between Bain’s Kloof and the Groenberg Mountain Range. The result is soils that are finer, more balanced and deeper than in the surrounding countryside with clay content evenly distributed. A combination of Malmesbury shale, homogenic Glenrosa and Clovelly soils ensure that the roots are able to descend to four metres or beyond.
