Super Single Vineyards, 'Pella' Oukliprant, Malbec, 2017, Stellenbosch, South Africa


A Malbec from South Africa? It's fantastic. Earthy, roasted dark fruit aromas, balanced and incredibly smooth. A wonderful wine and an excellent example of premium Malbec not from Argentina! Very elegant, good oak ageing, premium in feel. A classy, delicious, and sumptuous red wine. Behaves like a Gran Reserva Rioja, but with a smoky fruity punch. Highly recommended.

This wine is made in small batches, as premium Malbec grapes are not widely grown in South Africa. While Malbec does make it's way into some blends, it's not common to se a 100% varietal wine. 2017 was a great year for South African reds, and this wine shows so well.

If you're a red meat lover, we recommend this with a rib of beef or roasted joint. Stunning.
