Doolhof Cape Boar 2020

R 76.00

A rich Cape expression of classic Bordeaux characteristics.

Tasting Notes

Red plum in colour, with blackberry, cherry, truffle and cedar wood on the nose. The palate, medium in body, shows an abundance of fruit, softness and fine subtle tannins towards the back. The wine has a dry and lingering finish.

Winemaker's Notes

A Bordeaux style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Both cultivars were handpicked, sorted and then vinified seperately. Two pumpovers daily to achieve enough extraction for this medium bodied wine that can be enjoyed upon release. Ageing in stainless steel infused with French oak for 8 months after which the wine was bottled in November 2020.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with roast Lamb, Eland medallions, Italian pasta or pizza. An excellent match with Chicken Coq au Vin or Lamb stew.
