An exquisite vintage of Cabernet Franc. Youthful, dark crimson with inviting aromas of perfumed blackcurrants, violets, vanilla, truffles and sweet spice. The wine is rich and full with a subtle underlying structure and soft, velvety tannins very neatly integrated for a long finish.
Food Pairing: tuna & fresh lemon, smoked salmon and a fresh garden salad or light delicate red meat.
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.
