Malbec has found a welcoming home in Stellenbosch, flourishing along with the other Bordeaux red varietals that the region is renowned for. The variety is best known in Stellenbosch for producing very expressive wines that are more approachable in their youth than Cabernet and Merlot, medium-bodied with fine tannins and a generous mid-palate.
IWSC Tasting Note | 92pts
“A feminine wine from nose to finish with baked blueberry muffin bouquet and violet tones on a precise purple fruit palate. Generous, clean and plush, it’s a cool, confident customer.” – IWSC
A great wine to enjoy on its own or with a wide variety of roasted meats, Italian fare or mushroom based dishes.
