Winemakers Selection Lynchpin 2019

Cloof’s premium range of wines that reflect the artistry and expertise of our master winemaker that selects the wine after a stringent block and barrel selection. A Lynchpin relates to the cornerstone that holds the various elements of a complicated structure in together. In this unfiltered blend, the Lynchpin is an unfiltered Cabernet Franc (51%) supported by a rich Merlot (30%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (19%). The wine is polished and poised with violet perfume, a defined structure, and provides an explosion of blackberries and dark cherries supported by well-integrated French oak. This wine is excellent with beef (steak), lamb, grilled veal, and turkey. It is also a great match with couscous, tandoori spices, bean dishes and hearty stews.

Inkspot 2018

Within Cloof’s “The Signature Range”, the Inkspot is a soft, juicy, and approachable Cape Red blend of Pinotage (36%), Shiraz (31%), Cabernet Sauvignon (22%), and Merlot (11%). A powerful and inky concentration with a tightly woven structure and perfect balance. Strawberries and plums with a hint of spices and smokiness due to barrel fermentation and maturation. This blend with soft ripe tannins and red fruit flavors evolves into a well-rounded finish. Enjoyed with rosemary marinated lamb shank or cold meat platter and grilled goat’s cheese salad.

The Very Sexy Shiraz 2019

Within Cloof’s “The Signature Range”, The Very Sexy Shiraz has been described as ‘Shiraz Heaven’ and has been named after the experience when drinking it. The bouquet hosts a plethora of spices with cloves at the forefront. Matured in French oak barrels for 12-months, this full-bodied wine is silky, yet structured, and has soft ripe tannins and a fruit, dry finish. Enjoyed best with the big flavors of brisket, stews, lamb, venison, or roast duck in a plum sauce.
