Reviews of purchase Cloof, Pinotage, 2015
The wine is ruby red in color with purple highlights.
Taste wine - rounded, balanced, intense, with hints of plum, black fruit and seductive nuances of dark chocolate. Long, refined finish with touches of oak and tobacco.
The wine is concentrated, powerful flavor, which is dominated by tones of prunes, fruit accents and black berries, nuances of cigars and light notes of honey. Refined, rich bouquet.
The wine will be an excellent complement to the smoked duck, pork dishes, spicy meat or fish dishes.
