Neethlingshof Malbec 2014

Characteristics:
Deep ruby colour, almost black. Plum and cherry aromas mingled with violets, spices, dark chocolate and a touch of mint. Tannins are well integrated. Ready to drink, but will mature for a further 5 years.

Food pairing:
Delicious all-rounder that partners red meat: fried, stir-fried or roasted. The winemaker loves to serve it with galric and rosemary roast chicken.

About the winery:
The story about this historic estate dates 300 years back to 1692 when Willem Barend Lubbe settled on the flanks of the Bottelary hills. The property counts 273 hectares of which 163 are planted with vines. The vineyards enjoy the Atlantic sea breeze that brings refreshment every afternoon. The beautiful driveway and the towering fountain make the vineyard one of the most recognizable of the Cape. Neethlingshof aims high in protecting the biodiversity on the estate.
