CLOOF "THE VERY SEXY SHIRAZ"

CLOOF "THE VERY SEXY SHIRAZ" - Darling, SOUTH ARICA - 2012

Attractive style, deep dark red, nice peppery black fruit nose with white pepper, cloves, cinnamon and mulberries mouth-feel, ripe and soft tannic structure, it is insanely concentrated, with dangerously seductive aromas and flavours. Well paired with a hearty venison stew or spiced lamb chops.
