The Very Sexy Shiraz 2007 - Cloof: The Very Sexy Shiraz 2007 - Rotwein von Cloof WinesDer The Very Sexy Shiraz 2007 von Cloof Wines trägt seinen Namen zu Recht! Er ist einfach sexy und macht unheimlich Spaß zu trinken. Im Glas sehen wir ihn in einem dichten, undurchdringlichen Purpurrot und duftet intensiv nach Pflaumen, schwarzem Pfeffer und einer leichten, süßlichen Holznote mit einer anfänglichen Rauchnote. Am Gaumen präsentiert er sich unwahrscheinlich sanft und fruchtig. Wir spüren konzentrierte Fruchtaromen und ein wenig süßliche Holzwürze, die an Zedern erinnert und gut zum verführerischen, schmeichelnden Charakter des Weines passt. Genießen Sie ihn zu rosa gebratener Entenbrust mit Weichselsauce oder Wildschweingulasch mit Preiselbeeren.Weingut: Cloof WinesLand: SüdafrikaRegion: StellenboschRebsorte: 100% ShirazInhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16- 18°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 Monate)Auszeichnungen des Cloof The Very Sexy Shiraz 2007:3.5 Platter Stars Rotwein > Südafrika > Stellenbosch

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.
