This wine has a purple-redish color. Got a bit of red fruit nose and spice with a short finish, though have a bit of grassy-bitter/chemical after-taste. It is not a very good wine in my opinion and is definitely not worth the price shown (USD $110.50).


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. The bold, concentrated flavours of this wine are directly attributable to the tiny yield of mature bush vines growing under extreme conditions. This is richly textured with notes of smoke, blackberry, plum with some spiciness and elegant oaky notes.
