"Rainbow's End" is the name of the Malan family's wine estate near Stellenbosch. It is a name that conjures up associations, and among these are the divine promise of sunshine after rain, of commitment to the earth, of a destination and a pot of gold.
With the launch of its maiden vintage – Rainbow's End Shiraz 2002 – the estate began to live up to these expectations.
The promise of Rainbow's End is in its fertility and climate. Situated on high-lying slopes, rising to 540m above sea level, the estate backs on to the Jonkershoek Mountain and overlooks the prized and productive Banghoek basin, which is encircled by mountains.
