A Closer Look at South African Malbec Wines

South African Malbec wines are a testament to the country’s ability to produce world-class wines that can compete on the global stage. These wines are crafted with passion and precision, resulting in a unique taste profile that sets them apart from their counterparts in other regions.

The Making of South African Malbec

The Malbec grapes used in these wines are grown in the granite-rich alluvial soils of the Swartland region. This results in low yields and small concentrated berries that are packed with flavour. The winemakers employ a unique technique of 30% whole bunch and 70% whole berry fermentation, adding complexity and tannin structure to the wine. The wine is naturally fermented in stainless steel tanks, with pump-overs done once daily during fermentation to extract maximum flavour and colour.

A Wine for Every Palate

One of the standout features of South African Malbec wines is their versatility. They pair well with a variety of dishes, from vegetable lasagne and pizzas to pasta, making them a great choice for those who enjoy experimenting with different foods. On the nose, these wines are warm and inviting, with ripe redcurrant and raspberry fruit and a hint of spice. On the palate, they are juicy and approachable, with a core of gentle red berry fruit nicely balanced by fresh acidity and a rounded, supple finish.
