Signatures of Doolhof Single Vineyard Pinotage 2015

Deep crimson in colour with aromas of clove, truffles and sweet spice on the nose. The palate is full and vibrant with juicy yet elegantly soft tannins which lingers to a smooth and long finish.

Perfect with Indian cuisine, briyani, a curry potjie and Thai cuisine. Lamb Rogan Josh Curry served with Basmati rice,a tomato and onion salad and a lemon, coriander and yogurt raita and freshly baked butter naan bread.

ageing : Enjoy now or store properly till 2022.

A modern, South African Pinotage bursting with an abundance of vibrant fruit.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand early morning and transported to the cellar in lugboxes.

in the cellar : Further sorting and cooling was done before crushing the grapes into a stainless steel tank to be cold-soaked for a further 24 hours. Fermentation was started with a selected culture and two pumpovers per day followed by five days extended maceration. The wine was pressed dry and malolactic fermentation occured naturally in stainles steel tanks after which the wine was racked to 300 liter barrel for 12 months of which 40% was new.
