Winemaker's Notes:

Vineyards were first planted at Cloof in 1966, with additional plantings in 1976 and 1987. In that time Darling, adjacent to the Swartland, was better known as a wheat farming region. A cellar was completed in time for the 1998 harvest, which allowed the first release of Cloof wines during the course of 1999. Vineyard area was significantly increased, with plantings every year from 1998 to 2000, bringing the total to 145 hectares. The 220 hectares of vineyards at neighbouring Burghers Post are under the same ownership, giving Cloof unparalleled access to (and control over) top quality fruit. In 2003 Darling was declared a wine region in its own right in recognition of the unique style and quality of wines grown here. Darling is a unique spot for growing grapes. In its deep clay soils, the roots of unirrigated vines burrow to depths of more than 8 metres in search of moisture. After expending all this effort a vine may often produce less than one litre of wine. The effect of the cooling breezes off the nearby Atlantic Ocean is to preserve flavour in the berries. Inkspot - a wine of inky concentration with an unparalleled richness in the mouth. The prime expression of low-yielding, dryland bush vines.
