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 of origin, darling by nature. Grown in vineyards that have been described as "Shiraz Heaven", this wine's luscious fruit was accessorised with the very best French Oak, making a package that is so appealing and seductive that it could only be named after the experience one has when drinking it. This is an exceptionally well-balanced Shiraz that combines freshness with weight, aroma with concentration, and rich blackberry fruit with a spicy, mineral lift. A powerful, characterful, individual wine.
