About this wine

This latest release Malbec from Withington can be considered quite a rarity! In South Africa Malbec accounts for less than half a percent of the national vineyard, although with 9 hectares planted in Darling they can boast four times the national average. Here it enjoys a Darling pace of life, slowly ripening under the cooling breeze, and these particular grapes, from a single vineyard on the Oranjefontein farm, thrive under the watchful eye of Andre Kirsten, a much respected grower in the region. The label depicts the Nguni cattle that graze the Darling region of South Africa.
