Doolhof Bloedklip Malbec 2016

R 875.00

The Limietberg Exclusives is a handful of rare wines, aiming to create a wine from each site, truly revealing of the specific terroir in a manner that honours its provenance, whilst optimizing expression. Bloedklip translated means Blood Stone. Our Malbec vineyard site, nestled high up against the Limietberg foothills is a red, extremely rocky portion of earth. This low yielding vineyard produces some of the most beautiful concentrated expressions of the Malbec variety; like drawing blood from stone…

This wine is sold per case only.


Tasting Notes

The nose of this wine is richly dense and savoury with hints of plum, black truffle and appears slightly rustic, almost reminiscent of an old world classic. The fruit remains pure and concentrated and follows through with well rounded and well balanced tannins.


Winemaker's Notes

The grapes for this wine is from the same vineyard as South Africas most awarded Malbec and in fact, a three barrel selection of new French and American oak selection 300 l barrels from our Single Vineyard Collection Malbec 2016. The wine is racked after 12 months of ageing, then blending the three barrels and put back into the same three barrels for a further 6 months. The extended period of ageing , gives time for more concentration and aroma development as well as tannin integration to take place. which results in this special bottling.
