Single Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2021 – 1.5L

R 580.00


Tasting Notes

Youthful, dark crimson with inviting aromas of perfumed blackcurrants,violets, vanilla, truffles, and sweet spice. The wine is rich and full with asubtle underlying structure and soft, velvety tannins very neatly integratedfor a long finish.

Winemaker's Notes

The vineyard is planted in deep, well-drained Oakleaf and Clovelly-type soils. With the row direction in an east-west orientation, it allows the vineyard to benefit from vertical penetration of sunlight into a sprawling canopy, preventing sunburn and allowing for slower ripening and good development during ripening. One of the last varietals to ripen on Doolhof, this vineyard shows much promise for future vintages.

The grapes were picked by hand and fermented in stainless steel. Barrel aging followed for 12 months in 40% new 300L French oak barrels. Only 160 bottles were produced.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with roast leg of lamb, also great with maturedcheese and preserves.
