TASTE
Exceptionally well-balanced Shiraz that combines freshness with weight, aroma with concentration, and rich blackberry fruit with a spicy, mineral lift. Powerful, characterful, individual wine.

Beef, Lamb, Game (deer, venison), Poultry

PRODUCER
If the coastal areas of Constantia and Stellenbosch resemble temperate French wine regions, Darling’s fierce climate has more in common with Spain. Gnarled bush vines push their roots down eight metres into the soil in search of moisture, while the summer sun impels the grapes to concentrated ripeness. This is not white wine territory, but the results for reds are brilliant: heady blends of fruit and savoury flavours, firm ripe tannins, and fresh acidity preserved by the cool night-time temperatures. Cloof is an exemplary ambassador for this exciting region, both for the quality of its wines and its overall approach: the winery has just earned the coveted ‘Biodiversity Champion’ title for its commitment to preserving the local environment.

VINEYARD
The vineyard was planted in 2000 on predominantly Tukulu soil. There is drip irrigation in place to avoid stress during ripening. The east-west rows are all positioned on a northeast-facing slope.

WINERY
The Shiraz had three days of cold soak at 10°C before inoculation, and then fermented on the skins for eight days at 30°C. After fermentation, the wine macerated for a further five days before pressing. After malolactic, the wine was transferred to French oak barrels (thirty-three percent new) for twelve months’ ageing.
