Clos Malverne

Clos Malverne was purchased by the present owner, Seymour Pritchard in December 1969. The Estate is owned and managed by the Pritchard family, who are totally dedicated to producing the finest wines at all times. We are an exclusive, medium-sized, upmarket wine producer specializing in red wines made from noble cultivars only. The first commercial wines were made in 1988. The grapes used are Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz. 60% of Clos Malverne wines are either Pinotage or Pinotage blends. The winery is rated as one of the top 5 red wine producers in South Africa, offering wines that represent excellent value for money. Clos Malverne is especially proud of the many local and international awards it has won. The size of Clos Malverne is 29ha with a yield of 8 tons per ha producing 250 000 bottles of wine per year. The ground is deep Hutton Clavelly soil. Clos Malverne has a Mediteranean climate with winter rainfall. The farm is situated approximately 300m above sea level, 20km from the Indian ocean as well as 50km from Cape Town and the cold Atlantic ocean. The cool sea breezes create an average summer temperature of 20 C. The winemaker is I.P.Smit. The wines are made in open fermenting tanks in the traditional French way and the grapes are pressed in round basket presses. All Clos Malverne wines are given individual attention which contributes towards the ultimate quality of the end product.
