North Bank Malbec 2012

This Malbec comes from South Africa's historic (and stunning) Spier Estate (where they've been making wines since the laste 1600s). Their talented winemaker, Lizanne Jordaan, is something of a Malbec dynamo who loves nothing more than proving the world's top examples aren't just from Argentina.

Lizanne used fruit grown near the estate's North Bank (home to Spier's award-winning hotel) and aged just a third of the wine in French oak for six months, imparting a delicate, spicy complexity. Just like its Argentine counterparts, it's brimful of concentrated, rich black fruits. As you would expect, it's great with steak, but has a refreshing quality that keeps you coming back for more.
