“Nestled in the unique region of Darling lies a place, so wondrous, tranquil and enchanting that it’s no surprise that we are able to produce some of the most exceptional wines that this distinctive part of the world has to offer. Cloof strives to achieve perfection in every bottle.
Their Lynchpin is a bit of a tilt at left-bank Bordeaux, aiming at elegance and refinement. Bright juicy fruits on a warm spicy palate leading to an easy finish.
The overall impression is gorgeous, with all the taut elegance to be expected from Cabernet Franc, the tart richness of Merlot, and the take-no-prisoners power of Cabernet Sauvignon. The aftertaste lingers for a good while, ending in a lip-smacking, appetite-inducing freshness.
Cabernet Franc plays the critically important role in this Cloof Lynchpin blend. It is, therefore, the lynchpin, hence the name of the wine.”
