Vinification Details

  • The grapes are harvested & sorted manually. After the selection process is completed, the berries are gently destalked and then proceed to the fermentation tanks. During the fermentation the berries and juice are cooled down to 5◦C for a cold maceration. After three days yeasts are added. Once complete the juice is separated from the berries to be pressed. The juice is transferred into virgin French oak barrels to obtain structure, complexity and maturity

History

  • Settlers started expanding the Cape region as farmland started to become scarce which led to the establishment of the towns of Robertson and Worcester. In the mid-19th century, the German settlers began planting orchards and vineyards and today, almost 40 percent of the vineyards in South Africa can be found in the Breede River Valley wine region

Regional Information

  • The Breede River Valley region offers a wide range of microclimates and terrains for grape cultivation. From the higher altitude mountain slopes with its rocky and stony soil to the valley floor running along the Breede river with mainly alluvial soil. A Mediterranean climate dominates this region, with temperatures colder in the winter and hotter in the summer than in the more coastal regions of the Western Cape.

Lovely smooth Malbec at a great price. I always ha

5 stars

Lovely smooth Malbec at a great price. I always have a few bottles in the cupboard and have never had any complaints when serving to visitors.

I had it on my own with a steak during lockdown.

4 stars

Yes smooth good value

Poor quality.

1 stars

Very poor quality wine; harsh, acidic and unlovely. Tesco also overcharged me, stating a shelf edge offer was in error, refusing a refund.....which left almost as bad a taste as the wine itself.

Revolting!

1 stars

Disgusting!!!! Malbec is my usual red tipple, but this was actually so bad, I poured it and the other bottle purchased down the sink. Very, very disappointed and didn’t want to rate it even one star.

This Malbec is one of the best medium priced wines

5 stars

This Malbec is one of the best medium priced wines I've had. Had it with red meant and it was just perfect! Even my husband who normally drinks Sauvignon Blank likes it!

Very disappointing 2016 vintage

Review from tesco.com

I love Argentinian Malbec in general and thought I would give this South African one a try. Previous vintages have had good reviews. Unfortunately, the 2016 vintage is still very young and immature, no depth of flavour, probably akin to mixing a carton of grape juice with added alcohol (not that I've ever tried that). Maybe over a couple of years the taste will improve, but I won't be buying any more of this one myself.

One f the best

Review from tesco.com

This wine goes with everything. I am not a wine expert but this is the only wine I will drink. It's is very easy to drink and the flavours all compliment each other. It's good with fish and meat also good for when you have had one of those days just for a slurp. The price is very palatable. Try it you won't be disappointed.

easy drinking wine

Review from tesco.com

I was impressed by this wine, but 48 hours after opening it was even better. I'm going to try another bottle next year, but I think it'll need till 2018 or later. Unfortunately I suspect I'll run out of bottles before it reaches the wine reaches its peak !!!

Excellent value.

Review from tesco.com

I bought this as part of a multipack sampler, which worked out at £4.10 per bottle, but even at its usual price this is still an excellent value red. I served it with a liver and onion casserole with spinach and peppery mash and it was a good match for the spice in the dish. Whilst this isn't a 'gourmet' wine, it is a great partner to robust dishes such as pepperoni pizza, beef in black bean sauce, chilli-con-carne, BBQ meats and the like, highly recommended.
